IGT Bianco Toscano
80% Trebbiano Toscano 20% Malvasia Bianca
The carefully selected hand picked grapes are harvested during the last week of September and brought to the cellar in small crates to maintain the skins healthy.
Daphne is the result of dedicated work and research to understand how to express the best of the Trebbiano & Malvasia Bianca’s characteristics. Fermented on their skin for five days in small open vats, gently being bathed down by hand to smoothly extract flavours, tannins & phenols, the grapes release their characteristics into the wine.
This technique, known as Orange Wine making, allows the grapes, to give the wine structure. After five days, the wine is transferred into Barriques and Tonneaux, where it finishes the fermentation and matures for about 10months. Daphné ferments exclusively on the grape’s indigenous yeasts, without any chemical additives, and is bottled without clarification or filtration.
Golden in colour, Daphné is a complex wine wiht structure and body.
On the nose floral, thanks to the Malvasia Bianca, with hints of herbs, that lead to a voluminous and mineralic palate with a good structure, thanks to the Trebbiano Toscano. Some fruit and tannins noticable with a pleasing and lingering aftertaste.
Thanks to its structure, Daphné combines very well with dishes that usually ask for a red wine, such as white meat, mature cheese, fois gras etc. In perfect harmony – as an insider’s tip – you will find it with truffle-dishes
(no wonder, the white truffel is indigenous to this territory) or a spicy Indian curry, whose pungent flavours Daphné is distinct to evolve and embrace
Temperature: 12-17 degrees
Tip: decanting 20min before drinking, enhances Daphnés flavours
