Solosole Pagus Camilla Price € 50.80
Sensory features: This radiant straw yellow wine impresses with intense aromas of Mediterranean herbs, meadow flowers and citrus notes. On the palate, it is full-bodied with refreshing acidity, a satisfying savouriness and minerality on the finish.
Grape variety: 100% Vermentino
Vineyards: Grapes for the Pagus Camilla Vermentino are grown in proximity of the river Camilla within 'Le Sondraie' vineyard which covers seven hectares at an altitude of 25 metres above sea level. This part of vineyard faces west, and its deep sandy soil is rich in iron and has gravel and clay layers. Vines are eleven years old and are trained with the Guyot system at 7,936 plants per hectare.
Vinifivcation: The grapes were hand harvested in September and sorted on arrival at the winery. The whole bunches were cooled before being gently pressed, the start of fermentation characterised by maceration on skins, before the must was separated and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 14°C for 25 days. The wine remained in tank on fine lees with regular bâtonnage for nine months until bottling in June, and was then stored in bottle for a few months prior to release.
Best served: Pagus Camilla is the ideal accompaniment to both sea and lake fish, and is excellent with prestigious raw fish dishes, Livorno-style mullet, Lake Garda sardines and various refined tempura specialities. It pairs perfectly at the end of a meal with Doppia Panna soft cheeses and Tuscan Pecorino. Serve at 8-10°C and uncork just before drinking.
