The grapes are hand harvested exclusively from our own vineyards in San Benedetto di Lugana - vineyards that are most suitable due to the high content of white clay. The harvest and selection of the grapes are done strictly by hand, in small 17-kg-cases.
Double bow Guyot, yield around 9,000 kg. of grapes per hectare, equivalent to 5,700 liters of wine or 63%.
Delicate, soft pressing of the whole bunch for most of the production, the rest with gentle destemming by oscillation. Thereafter, a strict protocol of vinification: racking for natural sedimentation, slow, temperature-controlled fermentation (14°/18°); fining for 5 months on fine lees.
Pairs best with fish-based plates, soup, pasta or rice, white meats.
