In the glass the SB shows a bright straw yellow colour. Intense fruity aromas, with notes of mango, green apple and white flowers. On the palate it is fresh, delicate, dry and mineral. Good persistence and structure.
The Bonfante family has been producing wines in Nizza Monferrato (AT), Piedmont, since 8 generations, in an area that represents the area of excellence for the production of Barbera d'asti and which in 2014 obtained the "Nizza DOCG" designation. The Marco Bonfante winery was founded in 2000 when the brothers Micaela and Marco Bonfante decided to start their own production process, this happens following the death of their father Domenico and the subsequent split of the winery he founded in which they already actively operated. The winery is a family-run company; Marco, graduated from the Oenological School of Alba, is the wine maker and deals with the production and management of the company at 360 degrees, assisted by an oenologist consultant Gianluca Scaglione, by an agronomist Daniele Eberle and by a certified laboratory of analysis the Bio-Chemical, while the administrative and shipment management is the responsibility of her sister Micaela.
The production philosophy reflects Bonfante's signature taste which is based on Marco's intuitions and preferences, made of simplicity and clarity. “Wines must be elegant.”
For white wines the first objective is pleasantness; they must be fruity, mineral, without fermentation or aging in wood, they must reflect the characteristics of the grape. The most important white grapes are: Cortese, Arneis, Moscato and Sauvignon Blanc.
Pairing Suggestions: Perfect as aperitif, it matches perfectly with fresh starters. Highly recommended with fish specialities, but also with risotto with asparagus or paccheri with artichokes.
Maturation: Grapes are destalked and soft-pressed at controlled temperature (18°) in steel tanks with selected yeasts.
