The vines are mainly trained on double-arched canes, called Cappuccina system, and planted on Eocenic marly-sandy soil with positive benefits. The 2021 harvest took place in September. The healthy and perfectly ripe grapes were hand-picked and placed in small crates to preserve the fruit. Gentle destemming was followed by a short maceration and soft crushing. The must was then classified through decantation, and fermented in stainless steel vats. The wine was racked into oak casks to complete alcoholic and then malolactic fermentation. It remained on the yeasts to increase the rich flavour, creamy texture and ageing potential. It was bottled in July 2022 and will develop mature aromas in the years to come. Seductive, well balanced and layered with distinctive harmony between freshness and volume, rich texture and grip. Floral aromas of hawthorn and acacia flowers, followed by fruity hints of tobacco peach, hazelnut, almond and citrus, closing on notes of custard, vanilla and honey. A delicate mineral note creates a taut, lingering finish, with a pleasing salty tang that blends nicely with the wine’s rounded, velvety profile. Particularly well-suited to fish dishes, excellent with vegetable-based first courses, white meats and cheeses. 50% Friulano 25% Pinot Blanc/Pinot Bianco 25% Sauvignon Blanc
