Monti Lessini - Denominazione di Origine Controllata - White

Mappale 77 is the result of a particular assemblage of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Rhine Riesling. "Mappale" is the name given to individual parcels of land on maps by the municipality of Trissino, the boundaries of each parcel often follow natural features like streams and hedges, grapes are taken from the vines on 77 Mappale to create this wine. We allow each of the three varieties to ferment separately and we pay great attention to the blending process to best represent each variety and this amazing terroir.
