Bottled history:

How it is made

The ripe grapes are picked by hand and vinified "white-style" with crushing and soft pressing, using a technique called semi-reduction (an absence of oxygen, or a very low oxygen content). The clarity of the must is obtained through static cold settling for 24 hours. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 16-18°C, with the help of cold technology, in order to maintain all the aromatic fragrance of this variety. The wine is aged until January/February in temperature-controlled containers.

Vintage 2019
In 2019, the spring rains created significant water reserves, ideal for getting through a moderately hot summer with low rainfall. The generally colder, wetter climate in the first half of the year slightly delayed the growing season of the vines. After a hot but normal summer, September saw good weather and large fluctuations in temperature, which brought the grapes to perfect phenolic maturity.
