VINEYARD AREA: The grapes are selected from low-yielding vineyards in the commune of Motta di Livenza, in the province of Treviso, northern Italy. The vines are trained using the typical Guyot method.

HARVEST: The grapes are carefully picked by hand in late August.

VINIFICATION: The grapes are de-stemmed and delicately crushed, chilled to 10°C and left to macerate on their skins for approximately 10 hours, giving the must a pink hue. The grapes are then softly pressed, the must is placed in stainless steel fermentation tanks and then left to rest for 36 hours. Fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 17°C. The wine is left on its lees in stainless steel tanks for three months in order to maximise extraction of complex aromas

The wine has a lovely pink color with slight cooper hues. The bouquet is intense with enticing fragrances of fresh strawberries and pineapple. The palate it is full, fresh and crisp, with good acidity and a lingering sensation of citrus fruit and minerals. The finish is long and clean.

IDEAL WITH: Enjoy it by itself as an aperitif or with fish, seafood or poultry.
