NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS👁 a beautiful pale ruby with fine and persistent perlage;
👃🏻 on the nose the aroma recalls blackberries and geraniums;
👄 on the palate the texture is dense, it is juicy, it offers sensations of ripe fruit and a direct tasting grip; the acidity flows very pleasantly, the tannins are absorbed in the fruit.
Sacolet is a fresh, fragrant and effervescent wine: this is why it pairs well with both fresh and light dishes, as well as with food with some fatness (contrasted perfectly by the effervescence) such as meats and cheeses. We recommend to try it with cured meats, with a "cotechino" (a local pork sausage in a natural casing), a Robiola cheese, or a crouton with rustic paté.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
From the Teroldego of the 2015 vintage, which aged 24 months in tonneau, with small percentages of Gamaret and Diolinoir, combined with 10% of the sparkling base of the Classic Method, not fully fermented (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). Only indigenous yeasts and no added sugars.
As for the name: once the vines were tied with the use of "sacolet", the thin branches of the wild willow which, once twisted and tied with a particular knot, guaranteed to hold the shoots firmly to the iron wires that made up the vineyard.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
its freshness, fragrance and versatility.
We are in the Belluno area, an area of the Veneto where little and excellent wine is produced, being more widespread the production of beans, corn, barley, pumpkin and honey. Despite this, in recent years the cultivation of vines has resumed, also with the recovery of ancient native grape varieties.Currently there are about ten farms that grow vineyards in the province of Belluno; some have chosen to focus entirely on native and rare Bianchetta and Pavana while others have preferred to diversify native vines with international ones.
Pian delle Vette is located on the coasts above Pedavena, in Vignui, at 580 meters above sea level, a morainic territory left by glaciers, characterized by complex minerality in the subsoil. Pian delle Vette is the project of Egidio d'Incà and Walter Lira who instead of retiring, decided to take over this winery, destined to disappear, to make it flourish again, in an enchanted place, at the gates of the Park National of the Belluno Dolomites.The challenge was to make quality viticulture at high altitudes, respecting the surrounding environment in conditions that are not always easy, for this reason choosing typical mountain or high hill grape varieties: a single vineyard of 2.5 hectares around the cellar within the classic "postcard landscape". The vineyards are about 15 years old, with both white and red grapes.
