Here we grow both international – such as Chardonnay and Pinot -and native ones like Ortrugo and Malvasia. By manually harvesting the grapes at the right time we succeed to obtain this white wine characterized from the structure of the international vines and from the finesse of the auchthonous scents.
The harvest usually takes place in late September and after a careful vinification, avoiding oxidation, we proceed with a low temperature fermentation and then with decanting and batonnage until the following spring when we proceed to the wine bottling phase.
