Ventisei Bianco 2018
This fun wine contains 19% Sangiovese grapes, which are red! Whole bunches are pressed so the juice comes out fresh and in a straw yellow colour. We love our Sangiovese and we think it gives a nice extra punch to the Trebbiano and Malvasia in this wine. The alcoholic fermentation lasted from 20 to 30 days. We always kept an eye on our Bianco which aged partly in stainless steel vats and partly in used barriques. We kept it on its fine lees, stirring it on a regular basis until December.
Crisp, delicious aromas of white peaches and nectarines - imagine gorging yourself on your grandmother’s peach tree - join a delicate hint of wildflowers, pervading the senses, transporting you to that #pourmeanotherglass mood. Refreshing, buoyant, fragrant and with a sapid finish, Bianco calls for tasty nibbles at apéritif time, light seafood or simply... for another sip!

Ventisei winemaker Eline: " I was bitten by the wine bug a long time ago, but it really hit me hard when I arrived in Montepulciano, Tuscany. My mother, Virginie Saverys, had taken over Avignonesi winery. Observing her and her team walking the vineyards and caring for every single bunch of grapes was so fascinating. The way they manage to bottle the message of each vintage in such a unique manner, giving voice to a specific terroirwas like a budburst and I wanted to take a step further.
When I turned 26, I opened my first wine bar in Antwerp, Avini. I often visited Avignonesi of course and during one of their blending session I couldn't resist, so I sneaked in. For fun, I tried my own little blend...and I fell in love on the spot. When I was looking for a name for this wine, it came only natural to refer to this intende and wine-fueled year. And that is how it all began. Ventisei - 26 in Italian - was born. "
