The grapes are transported to the winery after harvesting by hand. After careful selection, they are stripped and pressed. The must is clarified and fermentation is brought to a controlled autoclave temperature of 15-16°C in steel. After fermentation, the coarser sediment is racked away and aging begins on the fine sediment with weekly stirring until January.
Bottles produced: 10,000 per harvest
Light straw yellow. A highlight is the tropical fruit fragrance of pineapple, completed by citrus nuances and hints of Mediterranean aromatic herbs. Good harmonic structure with a long and pleasant end note.
Accompaniments: The tiniest residual quantity of CO2, due to the production technique, together with the good structure makes this a versatile wine for many foods, and by many preferred to the bubbles in accompaniments normally reserved for sparkling wines. Perfect with fried dishes (seafood, vegetables and poultry) or raw fish and meat dishes, such as carpaccio and tartare, and with cold meats
