Fabio Motta, Le Gonnare Bianco 2020
Fabio Motta always considered Vermentino's most interesting part were its skins. Hence he made this lovely orange wine, for which he left the skins for six days in the fermenting must. The wine has a golden colour and is rich in aromatics.
Winemaking: After manual the harvest, the grapes are destemmed pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The young wine doesn't undergo malolactic conversion. The wine rests in ceramic containers. Light filtering takes place just before bottling
The Motta winery is a new, strong name in Bolgheri. Even though the Motta winery is young, it lacks nothing in passion, drive and experience. Motta is the realisation of one man's dream, Fabio Motta, who founded the winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines that were planted in 1997 within the Bolgheri DOC. The position was excellent: overlooking the sea, at the feet of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with a south-western exposure. But Fabio Motta was no newcomer in Bolgheri. He worked for many years with esteemed Bolgheri producer Michele Satta, whom is now, in addition to being both his friend and mentor, also his father-in-law. The wines of Fabio Motta respect and reflect the characteristic traits of the Bolgheri terroir, interpreted within the unique frame of each vintage. Fabio likes to say that the two main ingredients of his wines are fruit and freshness. He considers himself no more than a facilitator. It is the land, the grapes and the weather that shape the personality of his wines.
