Vinification and Maturation
The ripe and healthy grapes are pressed immediately after harvesting, and the must is then stored for 24 hours at a temperature of 5°-7°C. (41°-45°F.), in order to enrich it with the aromatic substances contained in the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation ensues, followed by a longish period of maturation on the wine’s own natural lees.

BouquetFresh and intense, with suggestions of green peppers, elderflowers and sage.
FlavourFresh, attractively fruity and persistent.
Serving TemperatureServe at 9°-10°C. (48°-50°F.)
Its elegant structure makes it ideal with shellfish, non-meat appetizers, and pasta and rice dishes containing seafood.
