Technical notes

Vinification: fermentation in stainless steel vats for 6-8 days at a temperature of 24-25° C, followed by the malolactic fermentation.

Ageing: a short stay in steel precedes bottling, which is carried out in the spring following the harvest. The wine is released after a few months of ageing in the bottle.

Pairings

A fine match for hot hors-d’oeuvres, pasta, vegetables and not overly-elaborate meat dishes.
