The grapes are collected in boxes and lightly pressed and undergo the cold static settling process. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16°-17°. Second fermentation with Charmat method in stainless steel at 14-15 C°. A five or six months settling period in bottles follows.
Light yellow in colour, pleasant mineral and smokey nose with grape notes. Ripe aromas on the palate. Full and balanced ending, full of fruit with a slightly bitter but pleasing aftertaste. An easy drinking, light and refreshing wine.
