Wine of the Month: "Il Sapiente"... White!

07 June 2021

The new products in the Tenute d’Italia catalogue for 2021 are starting to  come to light, and the first new entry that we present to you is certainly one of the most eagerly anticipated.

Il Sapiente”… doubled!

One of the most successful labels within the Tenute d’Italia offer is in fact now available not only in the historic red version (Sangiovese Rubicone I.G.P.) but also in the new white edition (Chardonnay Trebbiano Rubicone I.G.P.).

Il Sapiente” thus relaunches its image, becoming a real brand, confirming both its style - simple but captivating, now even more recognisable - as well as its inspiration, or the desire to pay heartfelt homage to the Romagna wine tradition.

In fact, it is no coincidence that the blend chosen for this new white version is perhaps the one that most of all embodies the extraordinary potential offered by the encounter between the passion that binds us to our land and the fabulous  suggestions offered by the international market.

Il Sapiente” Chardonnay Trebbiano Rubicone I.G.P. makes its conquests by its ability to translate this embrace between tradition and innovation into a product that is simple (but never banal!), and clear, able to relate  frankly to the consumer,involving him in a sensory journey that starts from Romagna and projects itself to the world.

Clear, brilliant, “Il Sapiente” flows fluidly in the glass, revealing its unmistakable bouquet, in which the tropical fruity notes typical of Chardonnay meet the most genuine hints of Trebbiano, from the suggestion of crunchy golden apple to the delicate hint of acacia honey.

Intense and harmonious, also on the palate our Chardonnay Trebbiano is a triumph of freshness that tickles both our taste and our imagination for recognition of the numerous aromas, while the adequate residual sugar gives it roundness and excellent persistence.

In perfect harmony with the production philosophy that distinguishes the entire Conte Zardi line, "Il Sapiente" confirms its extraordinary versatility on the table also in the white version, accompanying with style first courses based on fish (spaghetti with clams, shrimp and vegetable risotto) homemade pasta (tortelli with butter and sage, tagliatelle with mushrooms), but also second courses of more international inspiration such as chicken curry and sweet and sour pork.

Il Sapiente” Chardonnay Trebbiano Rubicone I.G.P. therefore makes its debut on the market with full intentions to reaffirm and expand the success of its brand, which, after the important developments in recent years - with the launch of limited editions - is preparing to make a new, important commercial turning point ...

... this new white version may not in fact be the only novelty that Tenute d’Italia has in store for the Il Sapiente / Conte Zardi brand!
