Bine Longhe (from the dialect “long rows”) owes its name to the rows, about 300 meters long, that characterize our vineyard in Costalta.
The colors of the label lead back to the autumn colors that correspond to the period of the late harvest of this truly unique wine.
The grapes come from selected rows in the Costalta area, where during the harvest they are left to over-ripen in the vineyard for 20 days by cutting the shoot. The hand-picked grapes in plastic crates are de-stemmed and transformed into must by soft pressing.
The fermentation of the must takes place at a controlled temperature between 16 and 18 degrees in steel tanks for about 12 months.
The long stay on the lees and the batonnage, favor the extraction of the glutathione present in the yeasts of the fine lees, one of the strongest antioxidants present in nature.
The wine is then bottled, where it will rest for at least 12 months before being released on the market.
In this way it is possible to limit the addition of sulphites at the final stages of processing, when the components of the wine are better integrated and less prone to bond with the sulfur dioxide.
Bine Longhe is a wine of an intense straw yellow, rich and brilliant color that comes from the late October harvest, after leaving the grapes to over-ripen in the vineyard for about 20 days. Characterized by a strong herbaceous and balsamic scent, fine and fresh, it combines the floral fragrance with lively and juicy fruit. Full mineral taste, enveloping and persistent on the palate, with a slight aftertaste of bitter almond.
Soave is naturally a delicate wine, the beautiful acidity of Le Bine Longhe makes it suitable for pairing with more complex dishes, fish or white meat dishes, sausages and aged cheeses.
From salmon to Bolognese lasagna, from chicken curry to risotto with pumpkin up to traditional combinations such as cotechino with pearà or bigoli with sardines.
