Winemaking System

The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates and quickly brought to the winery where they are manually selected on a belt-conveyor. Destemmed and slightly crushed, they are sent to the vertical press where they are gently pressed. The must is clarified at low temperatures, and left to ferment 15/16°C in wooden barrels of 50 hectoliters before being bottled. After the fermentation the wine obtained rests on the lees for 5 months.


About 5 months in wooden barrels and then 3 months in bottle.

Color and Tasting Notes

Intense straw yellow, with light green reflections. Pleasant hints of exotic fruits, especially of grapefruit and white peach, mark the nose of this wine. Which shows its true identity on the palate with a pleasant flavor and freshness complemented by an extraordinary minerality and light taste sweetness.
