Manually harvested grapes in crates, fully matured, destemmed and soft pressed. The free-run must is then separated from the press must and put into small wooden barrels of 500-600 litres, where fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts. The “Tumultuous fermentation” phase lasts around 15-20 days until malolactic fermentation is almost complete. The temperature of the small barrels does not rise above 26-28°C. The wine is then transferred, and the Ribolla Gialla part is added to the bulk. 24 months wood ageing follows, then bottled without sterile filtration. The wine is aged in bottle for a further 12
Golden-yellow colour; complex on the nose, elegantly intense with hawthorn and frangipane, exotic fruits, spices and Mediterranean maquis. Full bodied, with balanced acidity and in harmony with refined and intriguing toasted undertones. A distinct focus on its uniqueness and belonging.
