Manually harvested grapes, destemmed and placed in a closed pneumatic press, followed by
cold skin-must contact for some hours. The free-run must is then separated from the pressed must and brought in 600/700 L slavonian oak barrels for first and second fermentation. 12 months wood ageing follows, then bottled without sterile filtration. The wine is aged in bottle for a further 6 months.
Intense straw-yellow colour with golden glares. The nose is complex, fruity, with delicate hints of exotic fruit, vanilla, dried fruit, and a mineral background. The palate is warm, balanced, elegant, spicy and fruity, mineral, with a good alcoholic perception and a persistent finish.
