Characteristics Tenuta Le Colonne Costa Toscana Vermentino
The influence of the Mediterranean Sea on vineyards near its shores is significant and can have several effects on vine cultivation and the quality of the wines produced. The wines made by Tenute Le Colonne, one of the wineries lying closest to the Tyrrhenian Sea, in Bolgheri, Tuscany (Italy), feel like this; they reflect a true Mediterranean essence. Owned by Alejandro Bulgheroni, an Argentine entrepreneur and wine lover, their wines are appreciated for their elegance, structure and distinctive character. These are high quality wines that are a great introduction to one of the most prestigious wine regions in Italy and that you now have the opportunity to enjoy in your own home.
Tenuta Le Colonne Costa Toscana Vermentino is a good example of their work. This is a white wine made with Vermentino grapes from sandy soils and at an altitude of approximately 40 metres above sea level. These vines that are positively influenced by the currents driven by the sea and that reduce the temperature difference at night. The vines are cultivated using organic agriculture and, once the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested manually. In the winery, after a gentle pressing, alcoholic fermentation begins, which takes place for about 12 days in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 18°C. The wine then remains on the lees for 3 months, also in stainless steel, and is finally filtered and bottled.
The result is an excellent white wine that is faithful to the type of grape variety used and to its Mediterranean roots. Tenuta Le Colonne Costa Toscana Vermentino is a fresh, energetic and elegant white wine that speaks volumes about the prestige of the Tuscan Coast.
