ECCOCI BLANCO

barre_titre

 

 

eccoci_blanco_transparente_smallEccoci Blanco is made from a blend of grapes from Ca l’Elsa parcels lying at the foot of an inactive volcano where soils are composed of siliceous-limestone and volcanic stones with very good drainage. The rest of the blend comes from the Can Nobas parcels, which lie near a river where the soil is siliceous-limestone with alluvial stones.

Varietals: 50% Roussanne, 30% Viognier and 20% Petit Manseng

Winemaking Practices

The grapes are hand-harvested. Whole berry clusters enter a pneumatic press that uses nitrogen to prevent oxidation. The grapes are slowly and gently pressed before entering a stainless steel vat followed by slow fermentation at 16 °C (60.8 °F) for two to three week sur-lie.

Tasting Notes

Viognier, Petit Manseng and Roussanne create an intensely aromatic wine with a long, smooth finish.  Elegant notes of citrus, white fruits and flowers.
