FROM THE VINEYARD…
This Sauvignon Blanc comes from a single vineyard called Vigna Cantanghel situated at an altitude of 500 m a.s.l. in the municipality of Civezzano on the foothills of Lagorai chain. The vineyard, isolated on a ridge of rock and bordered by a very old typical dry stone wall, overlooks the river Fersina. The southern exposure, the perfect microclimate, the constitution of the soil and the low yield per hectare (80 q/ha) are essential in marking out the particular organoleptic properties of the Vigna Cantanghel Sauvignon Blanc.
The soil is mainly composed of limestones and clayes. The high permeability allows water to move rapidly that is also favored by the slope of the hill.
The average age of vines, grown on the guyot system, is around 20 years.
The harvest is done entirely by hand in cases during the month of September when the grapes are perfectly ripe.
Maso Cantanghel has been certified organic since 2012, marked by the number ITBIO005V259.
