VT Castilla-León (Castilla y León)
Nosso is a white wine from the D.O Rueda produced by the Menade winery. This wine is made using only the Verdejo grape variety, which is the most commonly used white variety in the D.O.
The grapes used come from the Finca Menade, an estate situated 750 metres above sea level near the river Duero. The soils on the vineyards are mainly clay and stony varieties.
Nosso is produced and made in a natural manner, with no harmful products being used at any stage in the cultivation or winemaking process.
After the harvest has been carried out, the grapes are swiftly transported to the winery, where the grapes are left to ferment with wild yeasts at temperatures ranging between 18°C and 24°C.
A second fermentation is then carried out, where the wine takes on its volume and smoothness. Nosso then ages with the skins for between four to five months.
Before being placed onto the market, Nosso then ages for another 3 months in the bottle.
Menade is a winery from the D.O Rueda founded in 2005 by the Sanz brothers. They specialise in white wines that grow from vines that are no older than 30 years old.
