WINEMAKING: The grapes are collected by hand, with great care, generally beginning in mid-September. Vinification: soft pressing of whole grapes by means of a latest generation “Bucher Inertys” press, which makes it possible to prevent oxidation and thereby preserve the full aroma of the grapes.Fermentation is started by inoculating the must with selected yeast strains and the process takes place at a temperature of about 18°C in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by a brief stay on fine lees stirred gently.Bottling is performed in the spring after the harvest. Ageing in bottles for 2-4 months.
TASTING NOTES: Intense straw yellow in colour, the wine is clear, with fine golden reflections. The scent is strong, fragrant and characteristic, with pleasant and elegant apricot and citrus notes on a very delicate mineral and rusty background.Warm, savoury, harmonious mineral and juicy taste.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Goes particularly well with vegetables and white meat hors d’oeuvres, seafood salads and grilled fish, first courses of pasta.
