Disponibile anche online il nuovo Grechetto 2022 firmato Azienda Agricola Montioni

Il nuovo Grechetto Montioni 2022 è pronto per essere assaporato durante questa estate 2023 a partire dal 1° luglio. Tenete a mente questa data, manca davvero pochissimo!

Mentre aspettiamo che sia disponibile per l’acquisto online vi raccontiamo un po’ della sua storia e cosa troverete una volta stappata la vostra bottiglia di Grechetto IGT 2022.

L’estate 2022 come ricorderete è stata molto siccitosa: le piogge hanno tardato ad arrivare e a rinfrescare i nostri territori umbri. Ma le uve dei nostri vigneti si sono dimostrate forti e tenaci e dopo aver trascorso ben 4 mesi senza acqua hanno reagito positivamente alle piogge giunte a partire dai primi di agosto.

Dopo una fantastica vendemmia rigorosamente manuale durante i primi giorni di settembre le uve del Grechetto sono pronte ora per essere assaggiate!

Come si presenta il Grechetto IGT 2022 Montioni?

Il Grechetto Montioni 2022 ha profumi che ricordano il cedro, il lime e note di vaniglia.

Al gusto si riscontra una buona acidità accompagnate da una grande freschezza.
Insomma il Grechetto 2022 è il vino ideale per la calda estate che ci si prospetta: gustatelo fresco come aperitivo in terrazza con gli amici, accompagnato ad antipasti a base di pesce!

Come viene prodotto il Grechetto IGT

Il nostro vino bianco giovane è prodotto con uve 100% Grechetto, vitigno autoctono tipico dell’Umbria. I suoi grappoli, una volta raccolti manualmente a settembre durante la vendemmia, subiscono una fermentazione in acciaio per poi trascorrere tre mesi di affinamento in acciaio e tre mesi in bottiglia.

Il nostro consiglio

Vi consigliamo di assaporare il nostro Grechetto ad una temperatura di 10/12 gradi e di abbinarlo a formaggi freschi, a carni bianche e, ovviamente, a del buon pesce!

On occasion, the winemaker may decide to leave them in if the grapes themselves contain less tannin than desired. This is more acceptable if the stems have ‘ripened’ and started to turn brown. If increased skin extraction is desired, a winemaker might choose to crush the grapes after destemming.

Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.

Removal of stems first means no stem tannin can be extracted. In these cases the grapes pass between two rollers which squeeze the grapes enough to separate the skin and pulp, but not so much as to cause excessive shearing or tearing of the skin tissues. In some cases, notably with “delicate” red varietals such as Pinot noir or Syrah, all or part of the grapes might be left uncrushed (called “whole berry”) to encourage the retention of fruity aromas through partial carbonic maceration.

The Grapes

The quality of the grapes determines the quality of the wine more than any other factor. Grape quality is affected by variety as well as weather during the growing season, soil minerals and acidity, time of harvest, and pruning method. The combination of these effects is often referred to as the grape’s terroir.

Grapes are usually harvested from the vineyard from early September until early November in the northern hemisphere, and mid February until early March in the southern hemisphere. 

In some cool areas in the southern hemisphere, for example Tasmania, harvesting extends into May. The most common species of wine grape is Vitis Vinifera, which includes nearly all varieties of European origin. The most common species of wine grape is Vitis Vinifera, which includes nearly all varieties of European origin.

Manual harvesting is the hand-picking of grape clusters from the grapevines. In the United States, some grapes are picked into one- or two-ton bins for transport back to the winery. Manual harvesting has the advantage of using knowledgeable labor to not only pick the ripe clusters but also to leave behind the clusters that are not ripe or contain bunch rot or other defects. This can be an effective first line of defense to prevent inferior quality fruit from contaminating a lot or tank of wine.

Destemming is the process of separating stems from the grapes. Depending on the winemaking procedure, this process may be undertaken before crushing with the purpose of lowering the development of tannins and vegetal flavors in the resulting wine. Single berry harvesting, as is done with some German Trockenbeerenauslese, avoids this step altogether with the grapes being individually selected.

Crushing is the process when gently squeezing the berries and breaking the skins to start to liberate the contents of the berries. Destemming is the process of removing the grapes from the rachis (the stem which holds the grapes).

In traditional and smaller-scale wine making, the harvested grapes are sometimes crushed by trampling them barefoot or by the use of inexpensive small scale crushers. These can also destem at the same time. However, in larger wineries, a mechanical crusher/destemmer is used. The decision about destemming is different for red and white wine making. Generally when making white wine the fruit is only crushed, the stems are then placed in the press with the berries. The presence of stems in the mix facilitates pressing by allowing juice to flow past flattened skins.
