il Viognier

Viognier is a white grape variety originating from the Rhône Valley.
It resists drought but in many respects it is difficult to cultivate; it requires great knowledge and is very sensitive to albugin and powdery mildew.

Its grapes yield very little and must be harvested quickly.
It produces a wine with a singular scent of peach, apricot, white violet, honey and spices. The taste is rich, soft and of measured tension.

    Sensations: its peach, floral, crystalline and persuasively spicy fruit dominates the perfume. It lights up high, and so it always follows, gaining breath, clarity, light. A continuum driven by the rare richness in pulp, by the vivid strength in alcohol content, as well as self-powered by the virtuous and rare, absolute sharpness of transformation. The native grape of excellent maturity: persuasive, yet still vegetally, aromatically alive. The minty spices of oak to glaze the fragrance of the profile. Not burnished or attenuated by oenological flaws or too much sun. Indeed, its aroma and taste, the fruity and exotic varietal of this expressive grape species, makes it truly alive, and turgidly stainless. Rare fact for this variety in this vintage, which makes its virtuous, intact perfume even higher. An absolute out of class of great density and softness, the result of superior viticulture and enology. One of the best whites in Italy.
    Impressions of the manufacturer: Our beloved Viognier Pitorsino continues to improve to our great delight. It has perfectly adapted to our Maremma terroir, expressing a fullness of aromas and fragrances that will amaze the most demanding consumer.
    “PITORSINO 2017 presented by Pepi Lignana - Fattoria Il Casalone is a spectacular white with very high analytical-sensorial compositional skills. A wine that ennobles the producer (as a winegrower and transformer enologist), Viognier and the Tuscan Maremma, a land where this variety finds majestic and powerful splendor in such a creamy thickness. A masterpiece of nature and cellar that renders every ounce of varietal aroma of the native raw material coated with the sweetest glaze of the purest elevation oak."

    Impressions of the producer: “this wine continues to give us great satisfaction. It lends itself to many important combinations, but personally I find it exceptional with oysters."
    Luca Maroni : "PITORSINO 2016 by Pepi Lignana - Fattoria Il Casalone is confirmed as one of the best white wines in Italy. A wine that, although of rare, elective extractive richness, in the senses impresses itself even more for its transformative purity oenology, for the perfect succession of softness, acidity and tannin to the profuse taste with maximum expressive softness. Its banana and pear pulp is spectacular, mixed with the minty sweetness of oak and so balsamic and expressive persuasion."
