Read about this winery HERE
This wine is produced in eastern Veneto using 100% Pinot Grigio grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand in the early morning hours of the day. They then go through a soft pressing and are fermented with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 59-64 degrees F. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 3-5 months and then in bottles for another 2-3 months.
This wine has a strong straw yellow color with an intense aroma and notes of nutmeg, peach, ripened apple and citrus. It has a dry and elegant taste, with strong hints of orange peel. It is remarkably sapid, long and harmonic.
