Winemaking

The vineyards uses the traditional training method, known as “Metodo Spalliera”, where the stem can be as long as one meter and tied to a horizontal wire, assuring a high quality final product, bringing out the aromatic fruity features of the original vine. Grapes are handpicked during the second half of September, at peak ripening. The grapes are soft pressed and fermentation occurs with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, mainly located in our new winery.

Five months Charmat ageing, followed by three months in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow color with golden bright reflections. Fine and persistent perlage. Floral with fruity aromas of strong pear and golden delicious apple. The palate is refined, harmonious with lingering aroma and savoriness.
