Maso Franch Bianco, Cantina Lavis
Produced on an old farm guarded by a magnificent, unspoilt environment and natural ecosystem which is home to the vines that produce this wine. Organic agricultural techniques are employed in the vineyard: this is the ideal situation for the vine to grow and live, with an excellent vegetative and productive balance. Maso Franch reveals the noble vocation of the agricultural ecosystem. The perfect time for harvest is established by testing the grapes in the vineyard. Only when fragrance and salinity are joined by ripe and sweet sensations is the grape harvested by hand into small crates. After soft pressing and slow fermentation, the wine begins its long journey inside the cellar: an extremely rational and artisan procedure in which each passage undergoes meticulous assessment. The wine spends at least 24 months on its own lees, part in steel and part in small barrels made of French oak. Minimal racking, lots of patience and constant tasting allow this wine to express all the potential of a unique and extraordinary territory. Only after spending several months ageing in the bottle is Maso Franch ready to be uncorked.
