Production

Grapes are sourced from hillside vineyards in Oltrepo Pavese, Pavia, at 200-400m altitude. The climate has hot summers and cold winters, with an average of 600-900mm per year – particularly in late autumn and early Spring. After a careful selection of grapes in the vineyard, the grapes are de-stalked, crushed and the must including the skins is immediately cooled to around + 8 °C. Before pressing, 4-5 hours’ cold maceration is carried out in total absence of air in order to encourage extraction of the aromas from the skins. This gives the wine its delicate dusky pink colour from the natural pigmentation of ripe Pinot Grigio grapes. Once maceration has been completed, the crushed grape mass is softly pressed using bladder presses and the must fermented in stainless steel at a temperature of around 18°C.

Tasting notes

Appealing, lightly aromatic nose with redcurrant and cherry notes. The palate is crisp and incisive with strawberry and white peach fruit characters leading to a fresh and juicy finish.

Food match

Excellent on its own as an aperitif, but also suited to salads, fish and grilled chicken.
