Modello Bianco delle Venezie IGT play

Region: Italy / Veneto

The Latin root for the word ‘Modello’ is modus, the same as the Italian word for fashion, ‘moda.’ Masi’s vineyards are the finest hillside terroirs in the Veneto. Fruit comes from selected foothill vineyards, particularly the Stra’ del Milione estate at Castions di Strada, Friuli, with varied soil types, mainly calcareous sediments on basalt and clay. The grapes are Pinot Grigio and other local varieties. Each variety is harvested separately and vinified off the skins in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at controlled temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserve freshness and crisp fruit characters. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks, with a portion of Pinot Grigio aged in oak barrels. After final assemblage, the wine is aged one month in bottle.

tasting note

This pale-yellow has faint green traces. With floral, fresh and inviting aromas, the wine’s peach, tropical fruit and grapefruit flavors are crisp and bracing, with bright acidity, structure, and a long finish.

food pairing

A perfect aperitif, this also pairs with rice and pasta in delicate sauces, Mediterranean cuisine, white meats, poultry and vegetarian dishes.
