An unforgettable aromatic Mediterranean white, the fruit of the heroic viticulture of Pantelleria, Lighea 2017 is characterized by an ample and rich bouquet combined with a fresh mineral vein.
Bright, fruity aromas of lemon zest and green apple. The Vermentino brings clean, fresh acidity with structure; Moscato adds floral notes; and Trebbiano balances and smooths this wine giving way to a medium-bodied mouthfeel.
Its distinctive floral freshness merges with initial spicy notes, acidity and well-defined minerality; tannins just right. A pure Sangiovese that reveals all the magnificent qualities of this grape, further exalted by the small size of the vineyard whose name it bears. This plot is on soil consisting of Pliocene marine sediments, with sandy deposits and rocks smoothed by the action of the sea, and clay at deeper levels. Roncicone is located on a Marine Deposits geological formation. The vineyard is about 10 hectares in size, located at 320 meters above sea level and with a southeastern exposure. Grapes are handpicked and then selected: only perfect clusters become Roncicone.
