Bianco Magis stems from the desire to give white wine from Friuli Venezia Giulia a new interpretation, seeking greater complexity not only through careful selection in the vineyard, but also by giving it time to mature completely. In keeping with the Magis philosophy – to be unique and universal – we have combined Friulano, indigenous to and representative of the Region, with Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco, which are international in style. This long-living wine maintains its elegance and freshness, its firm backbone and long aromatic persistence. The 2019 harvest is the first.
The three grape varieties were harvested by hand at different times, at their peak of ripeness.
The wines were left to mature separately, a part in barrels and a part in stainless steel. They were kept on the lees for about 12 months with periodic bâtonnage (stirring to cause the noble lees present on the bottom of the containers to rise and encourage autolysis of the yeasts, which gives the wine more complex aromas and taste), they were then assembled in October 2020.
Bianco Magis was bottled at the end of November 2020 and marketed a few months later, in March 2021, enabling to achieve the required maturity using an “ingredient” as precious as it is irreplaceable: time.
