Manually harvested grapes in crates, 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. After a complete fermentation
follows a long period of maturation on lees, part in steel tanks (70%) and part in 600 l wooden barrels (30%). Followed by a sterile bottling without filtration. The wine is aged in the bottle for six 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.
