Vineyards Hillside vineyards of the Soave zone, east of Verona. Rocky, calcareous soil.
Winemaking Select hand-picked grapes are dried for 40 days to reduce water and concentrate sugar content and color. The grapes are then pressed, followed by short skin maceration at a low temperature. Part of the must is fermented in oak casks; the remainder, in stainless steel. The wine then matures on its lees for 6 to 7 months for added mouthfeel, flavor, and intensity. A minimum of 4 months bottle refinement follows.
Tasting Notes Color: Light gold.
Bouquet: Aromas of pears and apricots with subtle floral notes.
Taste: Rich, dry, and flavorful on the palate, with a long finish.
Food Pairing This voluptuous “Super White” pairs perfectly with pastas, grilled seafood, and aged cheeses.
