Cantrina - Riné tappo a vite

Riné gains a screw cap

posted on 13 January 2020
This coming March, the new 2018 vintage of Riné, its second vintage as a certified organic wine, will debut on the market under a screw cap for the first time, and so we want to talk a bit about this type of closure. We have been using this closure for some years now for Rosanoire, and since last year for our latest-born Valtènesi Chiaretto. We have found the results positive in terms of cellarability, soundness, and crispness, in particular over the medium- and long-term; our customers, often tired of opening wines that were tainted, have expressed full satisfaction. So, after these years of trials and careful study, we decided to give a screw cap to Riné as well, something that would add to the well-known ageability of this distinctive white, allowing it to preserve even greater aromatic intensity, a characteristic particularly expressive in the 2018 vintage. Given the screw cap’s sterility and hermetic seal, bottling wines is definitely made much easier, since less sulphites need to be used, which adds up to greater respect for the wine itself, for the terroir, and for the health of the consumer.

Riné

We’d like to talk to you a bit about our Riné. Although it has changed over the years, we conceived Cantrina’s white wine--our distinctive blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, and a bit of other white varieties we grow here in our estate vineyards--as one that would evolve and mature with cellaring, offering its best even many years after bottling. We noticed, though, in the few years, that we were often forced to sell Riné too soon, and thus offering our customers a wine that was still inexpressive and therefore not fully appreciated for what it really was.

This edition will be a bridge between the just-ended summertime and 2021 events. Profumi di Mosto will also host twenty wineries, where rose wines and Valtènesi red wines will be protagonists.
