Straw-yellow in color with greenish reflections. It has an intense bouquet, recalling green pepper, sage, peach and tomato leaves; full-bodied, dry, soft, it has a long aromatic finish.
The grapes are harvested entirely by hand using boxes, steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling.
The fermentation takes place 100% in steel at a controlled temperature of 14-16°C. When the fermentation is over, the product thus obtained is not poured off and therefore remains in the same containers to mature for about eight months at a constant temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is bottled. There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle before the wine is distributed.
Drink with: vegetable-based first courses, fish in general and particularly lobster, dishes with asparagus and sweet peppers.
Longevity: 6-10 years.
Serve at: 12-13°C.
