Harvest time
First 10 days of September. Our vineyards are at a considerable altitude; the harvest is therefore, the harvest is never so early. The altitude of 400 meters above sea level provides great natural aroma to the grapes and our effort is to preserve it during the whole phase of maturing in the vineyard, adjusting the number of leaves that shade the grapes in the final phase of ripening, year per year.

15,000 bottles

Vinification and Maturing
Manual harvesting into crates, destemming-crushing, cold maceration for 12 hours, pressing of the must and static clarification at around 8°C for 48 hours. Fermentation in stainless steel and interruption of the fermentation using cold. Two different bottlings, one in November and one at the end of February and a third optional bottling in April.

Organoleptic characteristics
Nicely intense yellow in colour, fragrant and aromatic bouquet with light notes of mandarin, grapefruit, white peach, flowers and sage. Refreshing taste, sweet and aromatic on the palate. This wine pairs well with the desserts of the best Italian tradition. We recommend it also for more daring pairings and more intense flavours: certain cheeses that are not overly seasoned, salami and figs, or as an aperitif. Some venture as far as grilled prawns. After all, in the olden days a typical snack of our household was bread, tuma cheese (made with sheep's milk) and Moscato.
