Grapes are de-stemmed and soft pressed with pneumatic presses, and the juice is immediately separated from the skins. Fermentation is temperature controlled at 20 C in stainless steel for 10 days. No malolactic takes place in order to preserve freshness. The wine is light straw in colour with a fresh lightly fruity bouquet. The palate shows delicate stone and citrus fruit, with a touch of nuttiness, typical of Orvieto. Light to medium weight with a smooth texture and pleasing gentle finish. The ideal aperitif, or perfect with seafood dishes.
