The hill-top hamlet of Ghizzano lies in the Pisan hills, close to the Tuscan coast. The Venerosi Pesciolini family settled here in the late 14th Century and the estate now encompasses around 350ha with 20ha of vines. Vineyards sit within this gentle landscape at 200m above sea level and are blessed with a mild climate thanks to the maritime influence. Wine has been bottled since 1985, organically certified from 2008 and is moving in a biodynamic direction with concrete eggs a recent addition. The property is now in the hands of Ginevra Pesciolini and her wines continue to gain almost annual Tre Bicchieri awards. As a part of her philosophy of ensuring the wines represent their location Ginevra has also been reducing the amount of new oak in her SuperTuscan creations. Natural yeasts, pressing under foot and a move to using larger format oak are also integral to the style of the wines.
Tenuta di Ghizzano Il Ghizzano Bianco 2020
“Deep straw colour. You can really smell some of the skin-contact Malvasia in the aroma. Then there is real grip on the finish after quite a characterful textured palate. This has so much more character than most Tuscan dry whites! I like the chewiness but there is no shortage of fruit.”
16.5 Points, Jancis Robinson
While Vermentino and Malvasia Bianca grapes are vinified traditionally pressing them and fermenting the juice at a low temperature with their indigenous yeasts along one month, Trebbiano grapes are left for few hours (from seven to 12 hours) , after refrigerating them, in the pressing machine with their skins and then racked and left in a stainless steel tank. All portions ferment with wild yeast.
Very easy drinking wine, fresh and fruity perfectly matching with summer dishes. 330 cases made.
