Manually harvested grapes in crates (max 15 kg each), 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 in stainless steel tanks from where it is decanted. The
clear limpid must is transferred and fermentation begins with selected yeasts. A period of ageing follow in 600 litres wooden barrels for 8 months on the fine lees. The wine is then bottled without sterile filtration and spend in the bottle another 6 months.
Somewhat intense straw-yellow colour, with greenish highlights. Aromatic, delicate hints of peach pulp and elder flowers, tenuous fragrance of yellow peppers and sage. Dry taste, elegant, pleasant and expressive after taste.
