Grape varieties

Chardonnay, Vermentino

 

Tasting:

Pale color with lightly shiny reflections. Pretty flowery nose with notes of sweet spice. Round mouth with a final on grapefruit. 

 

Fod and wine pairing:

Very harmonious as aperitif wine, you will naturally enjoy it with cheese. Thanks to its savory flavor, you will also appreciate it for an evening drink.

 

Vinification

Grapes are harvested by end of August in the really early moning so as to preserve all the freshness of the fruit. After a gentle pressing the juice settles in a tank at cold temperature so as to enhance the varietal aromas. A short maturation for about two months on fine lees preserves the aromas (working on lees helps to bring some fat). Then the wine is aged two months in former barrels with "stirring" to give its roundness and its particularity. Sterile filtration before bottling.
