This wine is the product of a fusion between Tai and Pinot Blanc grapes, deriving from different vineyards located on the hills of Cortela.
We decided to craft this wine as the encounter among our tradition as a winery and the innovation of our youngest members of the team: Tai was the first grape planted by Giovanni, our granddad and founder of La Costa winery; the innovative techniques of production and the light and catching design of the bottle represent the traits of our company and our family.
Wine making process
The grape harvest happens during the the early lights of the sunrise, when the bunches are still cool; in this way is possible to create the product in a lower temperature, preserving the aromatic power and conserving the freshness. From this derives the name Primaluce.
When the grape arrives in the winery it has been destemmed, so it is cooled to a temperature of 8-9 °C and pressed softly trough a pneumatic press .
The must derived from this press process is placed in a steel tank for the clarification. After that it is poured , it ferments trough selected wines’ yeasts with a temperature close to 20°C.
It follows other operations of pouring and the wine sits for four months within steel tanks; in the meanwhile, it is monitored constantly. Before that it is bottled, it happens a light filtration. It sits in the bottles for a brief period before top be commercialized.
The fruits obtained from these little hills lend to the wines more longevity and structure. The aromatic charge is important and it’s created thanks to a notable thermal excursion between the day and the night.
Remarkable olfactory provocation, of big intensity.
Nose: it appears a gradable floral bouquet composed by jasmine, lily and acacia; then a notable fruits’ smell: Golden apple and banana.
Mouth: It is refined, of strong character, with a marked persistence of taste. It stays a pleasant retrotaste.
It provides the best with fish main and second curses. It’s provocative if it’s used as aperitif and it is curious if it is used with soups.
