Vinification
Gentle pressing of the clusters, cryomaceration on the skins to extract fruit aromas and varietal characteristics of the malvasia grape, followed by static cold-settling of the must (at about 10°C), then controlled-temperature fermentation at 16–18°C and maturation in stainless steel.
Sensory profile
Appearing a pale straw-yellow, it offers up appealing, refined impressions of fruit and spring blossoms. It is elegant and full-flavoured in the mouth, and exhibits a finely-measured structure, supported by a lively vein of crisp acidity. It is ideal paired with antipasti, fish dishes and sushi, vegetable soups, and lighter meats.
