2.5 hectares: vines of approximately 20 years of age on Lequio formations (grey marl alternating with sand layers)

GRAPE VARIETY

White Moscato

VINIFICATION

White Moscato grapes are soft-pressed immediately following the harvest to extract the free-run must. Fermentation is carried out in pressure tanks at 15-16° C until alcohol by volume reaches 4-5% and approximately 2 bars of pressure. The wine is cooled to 0° C to halt fermentation. The wine is then filtered and ready for bottling

HOW

It develops the intriguing notes of a passito wine

Store in a dark, dry place at constant temperature, below 20° C. Serve at 6°-8° C, in a wide-mouthed champagne coupe to conserve the showy flourish of its nose.
