Vinification: the grapes undergo soft pressing before being immediately separated from the skins. The fermentation is carried out at a low temperature 18° C (85% in stainless steel, 15% in barriques), prior to refrigeration and static racking of the must.
Ageing: in steel for 2-3 months, cold stabilization in springtime is followed by bottling.
This is a white wine with personality, which resolutely defends its characteristics against the perils of time, allowing it to maintain the highest quality for several seasons. Straw-yellow with greenish highlights, it has an ample nose, with an intense bouquet featuring acacia flowers, vanilla, lemon, lily of the valley and bitter apples. Its nicely dry taste is full and savoury.
Excellent as an aperitif, it is its very best served with starters and fish and shellfish dishes. Its the perfect summer wine, but its gastronomic pairings know no seasonal limits.
