Grape Variety :Trebbiano, Malvasia, Vermentino and Grechetto
Ten per cent of the Vermentino is fermented in barriques and the remainder in stainless steel at 10° C to preserve the intense and fruity aroma with a hint of pink grapefruit and lychees. It is pleasantly fresh on the palate and the acidity is balanced by considerable body. A warm but harmonious wine with ample aftertaste. A structured white in Mediterranean style, but with aromatic dignity and exceptional quality.
Terroir: Siliceous sand (flavour and drinkability) above heavy calcareous clay (body and longevity)
Climate :Mediterranean with fresh mountain influences from the Appenin range (2000 mt)
Geology (soils): Arenaria, a Oligocene acidic sand alluvia, the bottom of ancient oceans over Alberese, a calcareuos clay marl formed during the more recent cretaceous era.
Hand selected and pressed softly in pneumatic press to enhance the grapes, only Vermentino is fermented partially on the skins,done a light maceration. Fermented in stainless steel, 10% in barriques, left on the lees until winter, racked gently. No clarification, only a light filtration 1 micron before bottling.
Aging (type of wood, format, time): Stainless steel, 10% barriques for 6 months
