Vinification: the grapes are delivered in small 20-kg crates with holes in them to facilitate aeration of the grapes. They are immediately softly pressed to avoid the breakdown of the skins and the must obtained is stored in a steel tank at a temperature of about 8/10°C to allow static decantation and, subsequently, the removal of the coarser parts. After about 24 hours, the must is racked and brought to a temperature of 16/18°C; the alcoholic fermentation process, which uses indigenous yeasts, is naturally triggered within a few hours Upon completion of fermentation, the wine is racked and stored at a temperature of 5/6°C.
Ageing: in stainless steel on its own fine lees which are regularly stirred into suspension until the following spring. The wine is then bottled and is released onto the market a couple of months later.
The colour is a deep straw yellow with greenish highlights. The bouquet is reminiscent of the scent of exotic fruits, ripe pears, hawthorn flowers and acacia honey. Pleasantly enveloping in the mouth, smooth and sweet with acidity that lends freshness and flavour to the aftertaste.
Serve chilled for an excellent aperitif. Ideal with fish-based starters and with light risottos and pasta dishes.
