The wine which some would choose as the only wine they would drink till they die. Ottocento white is a blend made of Istrian Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
The percentage of the varietals varies from harvest to harvest depending on the yield. Even though Malvasia often prevails in the wine, Pinot Grigio influences the pink colour of the Ottocento. Should be kept and served at 14 to 15 degrees Celsius, not chilled. It has a complex scent, a strong body, and a rich extract that is the result of natural fermentation on its own yeasts.
Grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed, and gravity fed into large wooden barrels for maceration which is started with natural yeasts.
Malvazija is macerated for about 15 days and Pinot Grigio, as well as Sauvignon Blanc, 5 to 6 days on a temperature of 22 to 25 degrees Celsius. We mix the grapes at least three times a day in which period wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. After pressing it is aged at least two years in big wooden barrels (1000 to 2500 litres).
If you'd like to know where Ottoceno got its name, you should visit Clai winery and let them tell you all about the inside family joke that dates back to the early days of production.
