From the 2019 vintage, this great white has made an extra step-up with a longer maceration with sur lie. Fantastic elegant and accessible wine. Beautifully fresh and fruity and made from traditional white grapes from Tuscany : 30% Trebbiano, 50% Vermentino and 20% Malvasia Bianca. The vineyard is located in Il Mulino at about 180m above sea level. There, the grapes are picked exclusively by hand and only the ripest grapes are carefully selected. The Vermentino grapes are vinified by pressing them traditionally and fermenting the juice at a low temperature for 1 month with the natural yeasts. The Trebbiano and Malvasia Bianca grapes remain with the skins in the pressing machine for several hours (7-12 hours) after cooling and then go into a stainless steel tank for fermentation and for 3-4 months. When fermentation of each different variety has ended, the wine is combined. Everything at Ghizzano is done according to biological and biodynamic principles and fermentation is only based on spontaneous fermentation (i.e. the natural yeasts on the grapes) and this can mean that the yield varies greatly every year. The Ghizzano Bianco is also a wine that can age beautifully for several years.

This Il Ghizzano Bianco is very accessible, soft, fruity (citrus aromas), mineral and has a fine acidity. In the nose we mainly smell acacia, pineapple, pear, yellow peach and white pepper. The wine has beautiful complex layers and with some time in the glass, attractive aromas and flavors of apple, peach and dried pear emerge. Full of phenolic tension and many flavors due to the long maturation on its own yeasts with a wonderfully long-lasting intense aftertaste.

The wine is certified organic and has the "Suolo e Salute" certificate. This delicious white wine also goes well with salads, pasta, vegetarian dishes and lean fish. Also wonderful to enjoy on a terrace. The Bianco Costa Toscana is always only made in a very small edition and only goes to a very limited number of importers outside Italy. Year after year, this wine receives high ratings from famous wine journalists such as James Suckling and Jancis Robinson.

Tenuta di Ghizzano is located in Ghizzano, close to the Tuscan coast, about 40 km from Livorno and 40 km south of Pisa. The area is also called Colline Pisane (Hills of Pisa). The wine estate is certified organic and biodynamic with a centuries-old history and famous for their terroir-driven wines. People do not like tricks and believe that the condition for a good wine must be the vineyard and a top wine therefore comes from a top vineyard. The wines from Tenuta di Ghizzano are all gems and of a high standard and this is also unanimously confirmed by wine critics.
