Displaying a delicate onion skin colour, the 2018 Salasso presents a bright perfume of mandarin, wild red berries, cinnamon and watermelon. It is seamless and energetic on the palate, offering a combination of dry, structural elements and a supple strawberry and cream texture, capped off with a fresh red berry finish.
The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in a mix of large-format foudre and old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
