Le Petit by Manincor is a natural sweet wine that comes from Petit Manseng grape varieties. These grapes are of French origin and are grown by Manincor within the Mazzon vineyards. This type of vine is niche and not very present on the Italian territory.
Straw yellow in color with golden reflections, Le Petit di Manincor has rich and complex aromas on the nose, releasing aromas of mango, lychee and dried apricots. These are combined with complex and layered hints of honey and noble rot. The taste is given by a perfect balance between sugars and acidity, sweet and energetic, it is a very fresh wine. Excellent to accompany delicate desserts but also to accompany cheeses at the end of a meal.
After the late harvest the grapes are pressed for 8 hours, then the wine ferments spontaneously in wooden barrels thanks to indigenous yeasts. Before being put on sale, Le Petit refines for at least 8 months in glass.
