Elvio Tintero Vino Bianco Secco

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

Vino Bianco Secco

  • The Favorita, Arneis, and Chardonnay are fermented separately and stocked at a low temperature; vinification is continued only when an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible
  • The fermented Favorita, Arneis, and Chardonnay are blended with unfermented Moscato, and the sugar in the Moscato must sets off the second fermentation
  • Just before the bottling a small dose (2-3%) of finished (frizzante) Moscato is added
  • No malolactic fermentation
  • This wine is produced and bottled by vintage but due to the fact that Tintero sources his grapes from different parts of Piedmont there is no specific DOC and it is currently not permitted to display vintage on table wines of this type
