Grapes are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity at the end of October, beginning of November. Softly de-stemmed grapes are cooled down to 4-6°C and then gently pressed in the pneumatic press. Later, the settled and clear juice starts fermenting slowly at precisely controlled temperature (15°C) in stainless steel tanks. When the fermenting juice reaches optimum sugar/acidity balance, fermentation is stopped by cooling, in order to retain the natural sweetness and freshness of the wine. Afterwards wine is kept cold at around 0°C before bottling.
Light golden color with greenish reflection. Quince, pineapple and mint aromas, with subtle scents of honeysuckle and apricot. Beautifully fresh and zesty palate, with notes of quince and pear.
