Marziano Abbona "Cinerino" Langhe Bianco 2021

The Abbonas discovered Viognier in the Rhone Valley. The desire to reproduce the excellence they found returned with them, and thus began Cinerino. The wine’s name comes from the grey herons that occasionally stop in the lake beside the vineyards.

VARIETAL/WINEMAKING: 100% Viognier. Crushing-destemming and 36-hour maceration on the stems using CO2, before draining and soft pressing, static decanting, and transfer to 225l (acacia and French oak); inoculation with selected indigenous yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation at cellar temperature for 26 days follows, with daily bâtonnage until alcoholic fermentation is complete. It ages on its lees for five months, during which time weekly bâtonnage is done. Aged in oak and acacia barrels for five months, at the end of which the wine is assembled in stainless steel tanks where static decantation is done.

TASTING NOTE:  The Cinerino, obtained only from Viogner grapes and reasult of the intuition and risk of Marziano Abbona, among the first to believe in the potential of this variety in Italy almost 30 years ago, shows in this 2021 the fabric of the great vintages, of those that will be great even in many years. Unique aromatic expressiveness on the nose, with notes of sage, rosemary, acacia honey and apricot. In the mouth we find the usual creaminess and an almost oily texture, fullness that never tires the palate thanks to a surprising acidity and elegance in the finish.
