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 lee at 12° - 13°C until spring, allowing a more complex and mellow structure. 

TASTING NOTE

Andreas Larsson: Pale colour with a green hue. Fresh and aromatic nose, grapefruit and pear aromas. The palate is on the lighter side with a hint of bitterness, crushed apple, young fresh acidity and a medium length.
Markus Del Monego: Bright yellow with green hue. Fresh nose with aroma reminiscent of grapefruit and candied pear, citrus fruit and fresh apple. On the palate medium weight and length with fresh fruit and crisp finish.
