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

Cultivated according to the guyot method; a density of 4000 vines per hectare, with extremely generous production yields. This is why plants are thinned to limit production to 10 tons per hectare. Grapes ripen very late, from late October until early November, when our valley climate is characterised by broad diurnal temperature ranges.

VINIFICATION

Hand picked grapes are left to cool over night in a cell. The morning after they are delicately de-stemmed so as to preserve their intactness, followed by 16 hours of cryomaceration at 10°. Must fermentation is also completed in steel at a low temperature. Must-oxygen contact is avoided as much as possible in every step of the process.

AGEING

In the bottle for 6 - 8 months.

SERVING TEMPERATURE

10° – 12°
