Organoleptic Characteristics

Intense straw yellow with faint reflections they ver- dognolous to the eye; pleasant hints of exotic fruit and especially grapefruit and white peach mark the nose of this wine which shows its true identity on the palate with a very pleasant savoriness and freshness complete with an extraordinary complexity and sweetness of taste.


Grapes harvested manually in small cas- seven are brought quickly to the canti- na where they undergo manual selection on a belt. De-stemmed and lightly crushed they arrive at the press where they are softly pressed. The resulting must is cold clarified and placed to ferment at a temperature of 15/16°C in 50 hl oak barrels. Once fermentation is finished, the resulting wine rests on the lees fi ni for about five months.
