Harvest period
Hand-harvested at the end of September - beginning of October
Gentle pressing of the clusters, cryomaceration on the skins to extract fruit aromas and varietal characteristics of the trebbiano and malvasia grapes, followed by static cold-settling of the must (ca. 10oC), then controlled-temperature fermentation of the must in small French oak barrels at a controlled temperature of 16–18 °C. The wine matures on the fine lees, with periodic bâttonage, for four months, then in steel for an additional three months.
Sensory profile
A deep straw-yellow, this wine offers delicate hints of acacia, citrus, and spice. The full-bodied palate exhibits fine structure, complemented by generous flavours and warm alcohol. This is wine that marries beautifully with fish dishes and seafood, particularly shellfish, and with fresh cheeses.
