Falco Astore - Spoleto DOC

CONTROLLED DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN

A wine heralding the rediscovery of an ancient autochthonous grape variety of our valley: Trebbiano Spoletino. Straw yellow in colour with delicate greenish reflexes, it presents a fresh and delicate aroma of yellow flowers and tropical fruits. Its citrus and mineral flavour is generous and persistent, with pleasantly refreshing and tangy notes, making it highly enjoyable. It brings out its best after 6-8 months in the bottle, during which time it continues its evolution, which also persists over the following months. Excellent even after being left to age for 3-4 years.

CULTIVATION TECHNIQUE

Grown according to the Guyot method, at a density of 4000 plants per hectare. The plant is by nature extremely generous and once suitably thinned, its yield drops to around 10 tons per hectare. It is harvested later on in the year, up to late October.

VINIFICATION

Hand picked grapes are left to cool in a cell at 5° over night. The next morning they are delicately de-stemmed and cryomacerated for 24 hours. They are gently pressed in the absence of oxygen; the must ferments at a low temperature in steel barrels.

AGEING

In the bottle for 6 - 8 months.

SERVING TEMPERATURE

10° - 12°

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Excellent for aperitifs. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to elaborate vegetarian dishes, seafood starters, fish and seafood first and second courses. It is subliminal served with white or black truffle based dishes, mildly mature cheeses and Umbrian charcuterie products.
