Morasinsi Moscato secco
Denominazione: Puglia Moscato Indicazione Geografica Protetta
In the second half of August we harvest our Moscato grapes, the aromatic variety we use to produce a pleasantly scented wine. The vines are fifteen years old and are trained using the spurred cordon system. The soil includes clay, limestone and humus and is characterised by the presence of crystal salts which give minerality to our wines. Fermentation is performed in concrete tanks and part of the grapes are fermented on their skins. The ageing process continues in concrete tanks on the fine lees for six months and for a further two months in the bottle. The scent evokes the pleasant taste of Moscato grapes during a walk in the vineyard. The delicate aroma has hints of fresh fruit, peach and lychee, and aromatic herbs. In the mouth it is dry, fresh and medium bodied. It is an ideal aperitif and our favourite pairings include seafood (sea urchins, walnuts, oysters, mussels), fresh cheeses and finger food. It can also be paired well with linguine with clams, parsley and a good extra virgin olive oil.
Morasinsi Bianco (70% Incrocio Manzoni, 30% Chardonnay)
Denominazione: Puglia Bianco Indicazione Geografica Protetta
This white wine originates from our Chardonnay and Manzoni bianco varieties. The vines are fifteen years old and are trained using the spurred cordon method. The grapes are handpicked around the 10th of August. The soil includes a good balance of clay and limestone, is rich in humus and is characterized by the presence of crystal salts, which gives minerality to our wines. Fermentation is performed in concrete tanks and a part of the grapes are fermented on their skins. The majority of the ageing process continues in concrete tanks and also sees some ageing in oak. The wine is then aged for two months in bottle before it is released. The Bianco includes notes of fresh flowers, fruits and mediterranean herbs giving an elegant flavour. The delicacy of the aromas are constantly evolving that offers new sensations with every swirl of the glass. As you sip and swallow the wine, we see great structure, fullness and persistency on the palate. It can be enjoyed as a fresh, young wine and is also perfect for ageing in the cellar for further years. Our favourite pairings are with fresh and semi-cured cheeses, fish carpaccio, roasted fish and white meat and is to be enjoyed for the entire meal. We suggest not to serve this wine very cold to allow for optimal expression and manifest itself in its complexity.
