The production of this wine implies a high quality of the transformed grape given not only by a healthy, analytical appearance but by a certain organoleptic conviction, too. Our long-standing experience has led us to select one single vineyard, over the more than 20 hectares, perfect for the achievement of our final result. The grape, collected in crates, is pressed to obtain a must that is initially cleaned and then fermented. With an alcoholic content of 5% by vol. part of this partially fermented must is transferred to barriques, where all the sugars are extracted. After slow static decantation and distancing of the largest lees, can the ageing process start and continue for several months. The merging of this part with the one in the steel results in a zippy but gracefully-contoured, refreshing wine. This wine is 100% handmade.
intense straw yellow with accentuated tinges of yellow-green.
intense, delicate, complex fragrance with moderate but discrete hints of wood, not invasive.
plush, caressing taste with an elegant concentration and length.
