12% - 75 cl

Dry White 

GRAPES: 100% Gargenega

VINEYARD AREAS: The grapes are selected from low-yielding vineyards in the commune of Monteforte d'Alpone, in the heart of the Soave Classico area in the province of Verona, northern Italy.
The vines are trained using the pergola Veronese method.

HARVEST: The grapes are carefully picked by hand in late September. The vineyards are picked over and over again, with workers selecting only those bunches at the perfect stage of maturity.

VINIFICATION: The grapes are de-stemmed and delicately pressed. The must is then chilled to 10°C and left to rest for approximately 18 hours. Fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 18°C.  The wine is left on its lees in stainless steel tanks far three months in order to maximise extraction of complex aromas

The wine has a lovely straw color.  On the nose it offers delicate aromas of green apples, citrus fruit and peaches. On the palate it is medium-bodied, lively and fresh with a persistent, almond-tinged mineral finish.
