Bianco dei Sorni

Trentino DOC Bianco dei Sorni

The Sorni vineyard area lies north of Lavis, in the heart of the Colline Avisiane (Avisio hills), where the soil and climate characterise the grapes cultivated to produce the Sorni wine. White wine made from Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Nosiola grapes. This appropriate blend develops a “sweet” bouquet and an aromatic scent that reminds of apricot, peach peel and quince – the typical fruit of Trento’s foothills – while the flower aromas hinted at are wild elder, wild flowers, sage and lemon verbena. Its intense and elegant taste brings freshness and pungency to the palate, leaving behind a pleasing and persistently aromatic sensation. Served fresh, it charmingly accompanies fish-based hors-d’oeuvres, creamed soups, risotti and various types of boiled white meats. Also indicated for cold dishes, it is excellent with non-matured goat cheeses.
