la Roncaia - Eclisse
A superior white assemblage
It charms us with its fragrance and intense perfumes, with its fruity notes, with its lengthy and aromatic palate. Eclisse is a fine, elegant blend top expression of white wines typical of this terroir. The grapes are harvested from vineyards on the hills between Tarcento and Attimis where the very low yield per hectare is conducive to greater quality.
*Vinification: each vine is harvested in order to reach a perfect maturation. Fermentation occurs separately for each grape variety, part in temperature- controlled (max 18 ̊C) stainless-steel vats and part in Allier oak barriques. The long contact with fine lees allows to produce a wine with great extract and aromatic complexity. Once assembled, “Eclisse” cuvèe further ages in temperature-controlled steel vats until bottling. Then, the wine ages in horizontally placed bottles to reach its perfect evolution.
