Summer is synonymous with long, sunny days, evenings with friends and aperitifs to spend moments in pleasant company … also with a good glass of wine, preferably white, fresh and with a wide bouquet of aromas.
The combination of “beautiful season, glass of fresh white wine” has always marked the most cheerful and convivial moments.
White wines have the gift of being able to mitigate the summer heat thanks to their freshness, aromaticity and, in some cases, distinct minerality capable of making drinking extremely pleasant.
In a land of important red wines (Ruché, Barbera, Grignolino), the many varieties of Tenuta Montemagno white wines stand out, capable of delighting the senses with their fruity, aromatic and savory notes, discovering endless possibilities for experiences and pairings.
Nypmhae is a blend of Sauvignon and Timorasso grapes grown in the estate’s vineyards with south/southwest exposure. The combination of these grapes results in a wine that is exclusive for its richness of sensations on the palate and nose (characteristics of the Sauvignon grape variety), with an important minerality given by the soil rich in sodium, magnesium and potassium, typical of Timorasso grapes.
This Sauvignon gives intense notes of citrus and exotic fruit, where the passion fruit stands out in particular, while the Timorasso gives off delicate mineral and flint notes. It is an intense, complex and very pleasant white wine.
Its structure, complex and firm, makes it a wine with a good capacity for aging, very versatile in pairings, so much so that it is a great classic for structured aperitifs and Sunday brunches.
Musae, is the fruit of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris (mutation of Sauvignon Blanc characterized by the pink berry) grapes, vinified in purity. This label stands out for its ample aromatic notes and taste persistence. It is a smooth and firm wine on the palate. Elegant and with pleasant freshness, it stands out for the great intensity of aromas, we find a lot of citrus but also acacia flowers and honey, savory and with great persistence and intensity.
As summer approaches, it is the perfect wine, served at a temperature of 10°-12°, to accompany the simplest aperitifs and fish dishes, even raw.
Solis Vis is the Piedmontese white wine, made from Timorasso grapes, capable of conveying sensations and emotions that have nothing to envy to those of the finest red wines. For the longevity it can achieve, we can safely call it a white wine with the soul of a great red. Solis Vis is a particular label, it gives intense mineral notes the delicate scent of freshly cut pear and a unique sapidity and intensity, its persistence is truly amazing, this white is able to reach important gradations and to accompany dishes characterized by a strong personality: from seasoned and tasty cheeses typical of Piedmontese production, to cod, shellfish up to foie gras escalopes and spiced poultry, without forgetting the traditional “vitello tonnato”, a typical recipe of the territory.
Nymphae, Musae, Solis Vis from Tenuta Montemagno are the perfect wines to let yourself be transported into an unforgettable experience, with the infinite aromatic nuances and heady freshness that only whites born in a land of important reds, can give.
