Harvest Mid and late August
Serving 14° C
Winemaking Chardonnay grapes are harvested and pressed, and their must (without skins) is placed in a fermentation vat at 10° C. After 10-12 days, we repeat the process for Pecorino grapes, and add their must to the same fermentation vat in equal amount. Only at that point (DO) we initiate the primary fermentation. Malolactic fermentation occurs in a tonneaux over 6 months, where we stir the wine on the lees (bâtonnage). Ages 8 months in the bottle.
Tasting notes Banana, kumquat, passion fruit, roasted almonds. A sapid and persistent counterpoint between mellowness and freshness.
