ILATIUM MORINI, SOAVE, DOC, VENETO, ITALY 2018
The seven brothers and cousins involved with ILatium Morini changed their approach in 2004 and decided to keep the best grapes to make wine themselves.
Since 2004 the torrent of accolades, including an IWC Gold for their Amarone and glowing reviews from Jancis Robinson, would suggest that they made the right decision. Now at the forefront of the new wave production of Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone, the wines combine beautiful fruit concentration with fresh, bright acidity. Another recent string to their bow was the release of a no added sulphur Soave.
Today the winery cultivates 40 hectares with plots spread across Valpolicella and Soave. Trellis grapevines, 25/30 years, 4500 plants per hectare, in the vineyard of Mezzane and Illasi at 200 m amsl. Chalky/clay medium-texture soils of alluvial origin.
Static cleaning with enological enzymes at low temperatures. Controlled temperature fermentation at 15/16 °C for 15 days.
No oak treatment
Light crisp and refreshing white, straw green in colour. White flowers, apple and exotic fruits on the nose which follow in the mouth to a delicate, citrusy, dry with almondy and mineral finish.
Pair with sage roasted chicken, light pasta dishes and crisp salads.
