L’Aura Ronchi di Brescia IGT 2019
27 in stock
L’Aura is the first modern Schiava Gentile to be made at Botticino. In fact, our land was once used, especially in past centuries, to cultivate this generous grape and then make a single-variety wine with its medium-large bunches. The grapes are harvested by hand in late September.
[bg_collapse view=”link” color=”#AD9471″ expand_text=”Read more” collapse_text=”Close” ] We have set out to recover this lost tradition and adapt it to modern vinification methods. The grapes are gently destemmed and the skins are left in contact with the must for just one hour, to enhance the delicate fragrances and reduce tannin. The wine then stands all winter in a steel vat placed outdoors, so that the freezing nights can stabilise it naturally. We produce only a few bottles of this fresh, young, light-coloured wine, which reflects and underlines the distinctive features of our territory, such as the marly terrain (limestone and clay) which boosts minerals and sapidity. It is a perfect summer wine, delicious with delicately flavoured dishes and freshwater fish.

Things you should know…
Our vineyards sit high in the hills, at about 400 metres above sea level, right next to the famous “Botticino classico” marble quarries, with ideal sun exposure and microclimate, and a constant breeze that enables us to grow healthy grapes without chemical treatment.
This makes our wine truly genuine, even in terms of sulphite use: for organic wines, the sulphite limit is 100 mg/l, lower than for non-organic wines. However, the amount in our wines is even lower.
Moreover, we do not use any type of chemical weedkiller on our soils, which are simply tilled to remove weeds. On every single vine, we apply natural, manual cultivation techniques such as disbudding, leaf-stripping and thinning to select the best bunches, which will repay our care in the cellar with rewards that only nature can give.[/bg_collapse]
