Fabio Motta Le Gonnare Bolgheri Bianco 2022

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

100% Vermentino. Delicious and aromatic, chilled green orchard fruits, sea-spray, and aromatic ripe melon. After fermentation of destemmed grapes in stainless steel, l the wines rests in ceramic for three months. Bottled unfined and following a light filtration.

A note from Fabio: “My research in the “white” world led me to the definition of this unconventional wine. I have always found that the most interesting aspect of Vermentino lies in the skin. It is a delicious grape to eat, rich in aromatic notes. So I wanted to vinify Vermentino from “Le Gonnare” vineyard, a small area planted in 1987, leaving the skins to macerate with the must during alcoholic fermentation. A six-day contact that transferred these aromatic suggestions and a golden colour to the wine, without weighing it down. A mouth full and tense at the same time.”

“”The Fabio Motta 2022 Vermentino Le Gonnare shows a bright yellow color that is a bit unusual for this variety that normally tends to have a tinge of green, after which the grape gets its name. Instead, this wine has a very generous bouquet with mature aromas of Golden Delicious apple and quince. It reveals an important presence to the bouquet and ultimately to the palate, thanks to winemaking choices that include work with the skins. It sees six days of maceration (but no malolactic fermentation) and rests in ceramic TAVA vessels for up to six months. I suggest slightly longer drinking as a result. This wine is original and full of character. Only 2,200 bottles were made.”” 2023 – 2027

This is the story of one man’s dream come true, Fabio Motta, who founded the winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines planted in 1997 within the Bolgheri DOC. The position is excellent: overlooking the sea, at the feet of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with southwestern exposure. No newcomer to Bolgheri, Fabio has worked for many years with esteemed Bolgheri producer Michele Satta, who is also his father-in-law.

Fabio’s wines respect and reflect the characteristic traits of the Bolgheri terroir, interpreted within the unique frame of each vintage. In the cellar, Fabio works in a simple way, following his philosophy of “non-interference,” using natural yeasts and no filtering, crafting wines which excel in elegance and complexity rather than power and concentration.

In 2015 Fabio started converting his vineyards into biodynamic.
