Wine region: Bela krajina
Variety: 30% sauvignon blanc, 30% welschriesling, 20 % kerner, 20% riesling
Ciao Belo is a revisited version of traditional white blend from Bela Krajina, a classic drinkable blend from our region, with a modern twist. As in many places in Slovenia and central Europe these blends are generally made with a mixture of different white varieties that have been planted by the previous generations. This 2019 vintage is composed of Kerner, Sauvignon, Riesling and Welschriesling.
Wine is driven by yellow fruits (peach, apricot) and slightly floral aromas supported with tropical aromas and a hint of dry herbs on the nose. Wine is medium bodied, mineral, fresh with a long and pleasant after taste. Typical fresh blend from Bela Krajina with a modern twist. Drink from 2020 to 2022.
Grapes were hand-picked in 15 kg crates, fermented separately in stainless-steel tanks a 15-18°C for 10 days and aged on gross lees for 7 months. Final blend was made after racking and before fining and a rough filtration.
