WINEMAKING PROCESS

Grapes are softly pressed, then fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 17° - 18°C, after which the wine rests on fine deposits at 12° - 13°C until spring, allowing a more complex and mellow structure.

TASTING NOTE

Deep bright straw yellow. Elegant with hints of orange blossom and fruity notes of apple, pear and exotic fruit shaded with nutty tones. Dry, delicately full and pleasantly bitter.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Ideal with cold cuts and soft cheese.
Excellent with white meat and main courses dressed with red sauces.
