Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
La Tosa Sorriso di Cielo 2022 features a vibrant straw-yellow color with golden reflections. Its complex bouquet includes ripe white peaches, green apples, citrus zest, and floral notes. On the palate, it offers bright acidity with flavors of pear, melon, honey, and almond, leading to a smooth, slightly creamy texture. The long, clean finish highlights citrus and floral nuances, making it a fresh and elegant wine perfect for various pairings.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: Ronco 75% and small parcels of Morello and Sorriso 25%. Soil type: clay, silt-like soil (ancient red earth), not very fertile. Altitude: 180-210 meters above sea level. Training system: Guyot growing system 85%, Casarsa 15%.
Production Notes
Soft pressing of the whole grapes followed by fermentation which takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16 C. After that the wine rests for 5 months on its fine lees with batonages and the bottling happens during March, about 6 months after the harvest.
Winemaker Notes
Dry still white wine with light sugary residue, from the Malvasia di Candia Aromatica grapes cultivated for centuries in the Piacenza Hills, resulting in a light, pleasant wine. Sorriso di Cielo was created for the first time in 1991 based on the desire to produce a still wine from this vine variety, not only aromatic and pleasant, but also structured, complex and long lasting, something no one had ever tried up to that point. The years following 1991 confirmed the potential of this grape, truly one of the best native white grapes in Italy and the Italian alternative to Gewurtztraminer.
Food & Wine Pairing
An exquisite pairing with foie gras, shellfish, dishes with at the table squash and cheeses with average ageing; excellent at wine bars and with many aro- matic dishes and sweet pickled delicacies.
