Solesta

IGT Terre Lariane

The Celts who used to dwell in the Valle of Curone, Brianza, celebrated the summer solstice which was a meaningful event, with propitiating rites. This took place on the terraced “pyramid” where the vines of La Costa now grow. The “radiant” character of the wine gave us the inspiration to name it Solesta, as a tribute to the day that marks the transition to summertime.

 

Grapes:

Riesling Renano (at least 85%), Manzoni Bianco

Cellar:

Vinification in steel and in 20 hl acacia vats, fining of yeasts until the end of May. Periodic batonnage, then concrete tanks and bottled for at least 12 months.

Production:

5000 bottles

Tasting notes:

The Riesling grape variety highlights the area’s characteristics: acidity, sapidity, floral notes of exotic fruit and flint (due to the minerals in the soil). Manzoni bianco variety gives the wine a softer edge.

It’s a longevous wine worth tasting even after a few years.
