Fittà is the name of the ancient village where Suavia is based. It derives from the Latin word, “fictus,” meaning, “driven-in,” which refers to the masses of columnar basalt that are naturally found in the area and appear to have been driven into the ground. The name, Massifitti, translates roughly as, “embedded masses” and pays tribute to this aspect of the local area. Made from 100% Trebbiano di Soave, Massifitti is fermented in stainless steel tanks following a 24-hour cold soak maceration. It is then refined for another six months in tank.
Clear and brilliant in appearance, Massifitti displays intense aromas of stone fruit, white flower blossom, and mineral. On the palate the texture is creamy and the wine showcases defined minerality and vibrant acidity. All of these characteristics culminate in a long and focused finish.
While ideal as an aperitif, Massifitti pairs nicely with vegetable antipasti like grilled peppers and eggplant as well as fish-based main courses. Also excellent with raw shellfish or sashimi.
