Description

Ortrugo is an autoctonous white grape grown in Piacenza (western Emilia).

Temperature control during fermentation enhances the boldness of the aromas perceived, creating a direct line of communication between nose and mouth.

Despite its robust consistency and lingering taste, it is in no way any less pleasing to drink.

Vinification Method

The grape bunches, initially hand-picked and placed in small crates, are then destemmed and softly pressed to immediately separate the skins from the free-run must, which is in turn slowly fermented at a controlled temperature.

After the first rackings, the wine is filtered at 1.7% residual sugar, which in spring is required for secondary fermentation according to the Charmat method.

Characteristics Land and Vineyard

The Ortrugo vineyards are located on the first hill of Casatell’Arquato in the province of Piacenza, in the heart of Emilia.

It is a 13-year-old vineyard located in Casa Benna, bred with the classic Guyot method and planted in retouching on lean and well-drained soil.

Food Pairing

Wine suited to white fish dishes, light first courses, savoury tarts and risottos.

Also great as an apéritif and pairs well with pizza
