Innovation - The first white wine at Meroni farm

The company, since it was born in the 1935, has always produced wines from red berried grapes

In 2015 Carlo wished to realize a product that can enrich his wines offer

He experiments this challenge with the grape “Garganega”

Garganega is a grape peel hard, particularly yellow, almost red when it is ripe

The grapes after the harvest is softly pressed with pneumatic presses

Only after careful evaluations Carlo decides to use the “bâtonnage" technique

Thanks to this technique the wine acquires an increase of the wine’s body sensation and a better development of certain aromas

This operation takes about six months and it consists in keeping suspended the "noble lees" shaking the wine after alcoholic fermentation

Eating it matches with fish appetizers, white meat, seafood risotto, dishes based on eggs, unstructured foods in general
