Product information "Sensazioni Viognier DOC"

“Sensazioni” is a wine that we created to give the company an important white wine. It is made entirely with Viognier grapes, which we planted in 2006 to differentiate ourselves from other local producers. Vinification takes place at about 18°C after a soft pressing of the grapes, and the resulting wine is left to rest on its fine lees for a few months in stainless steel tanks. In order to keep the aromas fresh, during this period we carry out batonnage every week to mix the lees with the wine to avoidoxidation. A Viognier with outstanding body and structure, this wine has an intense aroma with marked hints of exotic fruit. A wine that goes very well with fish, fresh cheeses and white meats, it can also accompany the entire meal.

Ferraris Agricola

The philosophy that has always accompanied my work is to be able to combine respect for nature, tradition and technology in order to always obtain the best possible result, investing time (and not only) in the search for the best"

The history of the Ferraris Agricola winery began when great-grandfather Luigi emigrated to America and found gold during the "Golden rush" in California. Thanks to his income, great-grandmother Teresa, who had remained in Italy, had the opportunity to make his dreams come true. In 1921 she bought the house, in Castagnole Monferrato, in Via al Castello, home of the first Ferraris winery. Two years later, grandfather Martino bought the "Casot", a rural farmhouse in the middle of a 40,000 square meter plot where today one of the most representative vineyards of the company stands. However, the production of wine remained a passion and never a job. Thus, for decades, the grapes were given to the town's Social Cooperative.
