‘A Cengia – IGT Veneto Moscato Secco

‘A CENGIA
The Cengolina valley, keeper of the oldest vines of Fior d’Arancio and other Muscats, assumes through these presences the most spectacular morphology of Euganean viticulture.
The “cengie”, narrow terraces obtained by farmers over centuries of hard and continuous work on the steep slopes of the mountains that surround the valley, still allow to cultivate vineyards where precious minerals and the special lighting conditions let us obtain wines with intense flavors and unique aromas.

Vineyard
In Faedo valley and Val Cengolina, in cool and averagely deep marl soils, with limited fertility.

Vinification
It ferments in large oak barrels. After a traditionally long fermentation (several months) it remains still more time on its lees and then it rests and decants in cement tanks until the bottling after almost 2 years from the harvest. It is not clarified nor filtred.

Service and pairing
The rich scent reminds of the classic sweet muscat, instead it is a dry and crisp wine that in a few years evolves in attractive and very peculiar aromatic complexity. Solid structure allows challenging combinations such as tartares with meat or fish, asparagus, salmon. Excellent as pre-dinner. Serve at 12-14 °C.
