Grape Varietal: 100% Garganega Veronese
Vine Age: 38 years
Soil: Clay, with calcareous, marly subsoil
Training System: Pergoletta
Harvest: Second week of September
Fermentation: The grapes are harvested at different times of ripening and separately crushed, with cold pre-fermentation skin contact. Then the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at 16-18°C.
Aging: The wine is blended in January and stored in stainless steel tanks, in contact with the lees for an extended period of time. There is then a short period of bottle refinement before going to market.
Alcohol content: 12.5% alcohol by volume
Tasting Notes: Intense straw-yellow color. At the nose, a complex aroma with scents of exotic and summer fruits, pears, peaches, herbs, almonds, and a generous minerality, with traces of toasted vanilla. The taste is rich and compact, sustained by freshness, persistent and with a distinct flavor that intensifies the softness.
