"Artéteca" Vermentino Montecucco DOC 2021 - Basile

Artéteca, Vermentino Montecucco DOC, is the only white wine produced by the Azienda Agricola Biologica Basile. It comes from a blend of Vermentino, 85%, with Viognier and Petit Manseng. A wine of great pleasure, designed to accompany fish and shellfish dishes, typical of the nearby Tuscan coast. The grapes are harvested by hand, as is always the case in the estate, and are carefully selected and collected in 18 kg crates to avoid damage to the bunches during transport. After a few minutes, the grapes arrive in the cellar where they are sent for vinification. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks, throughout the process the temperature is kept below 18°C to preserve all the goodness of the varietal. This is followed by a quick refinement in the bottle for about 6 months before putting the wine on the market. A fresh and immediate wine, in the glass it has a beautiful straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. The nose is dominated by notes of sweet fruit and flowers. In the mouth, however, it is pleasantly fresh, with a pleasant sensation of fruit reminiscent of the scents perceived previously. A wine that should absolutely be drunk young, to fully enjoy the richness of its finest aromas.

This is the story of Giovan Battista Basile, a Neapolitan by origin but a Maremman by adoption. In 1999, in fact, he left his native Campania to live a life in the countryside, tending his vines, cradled by the mild climate of the slopes of the ancient Amiata Volcano, in the Tuscan Maremma. At the time, the estate was in a state of abandonment, but Giovan Battista did not give up and within a few years he managed to create a modern organic farm with zero environmental impact. The energy needed to run the farm is produced by a photovoltaic system and the renovation work followed the principles of green building and energy saving. Today the vineyards, which fall within the Montecucco DOCG, cover an area of about 8 hectares, divided between Sangiovese and Merlot, Vermentino, Vionier and Petit Manseng. Harvesting by hand and careful processing in the cellar allow the Basile Organic Farm to produce around 50,000 bottles each year.
