Vinification Special vinification starting from the settling of the juice. Racking of the must, being filtered instantly and before fermentation, followed by standard thermo-regulated fermentation. No malolactic fermentation. Maturation on fine lees.
Tasting Notes Very pale yellow green with gold highlights. The nose is quite rich and shows evident fruit maturity, with a mélange of citrus, yellow fruit and a faint touch of honey. The palate as well exhibits richness and dimension of flavor as well as length. The aftertaste offers subtle inflections. A flavorful, generous style departing from the typical. One-fifth fermented in barrel. - RB
