Wine maker notes
Grapes were harvested on October 5. The grapes are soft pressed intact and not destemmed. There is a pre-fermentation maceration of 6 hours at a cool 8˚C (46˚F). The must is then racked and inoculated with yeast and fermented at 15˚C (59˚F) for 20 days. The wine remains on the lees in stainless steel until February with continuous agitation. There is no Malolactic fermentation. After bottling, the wine is kept for 7 months in the cellar for aging.

Food pairing
An outstanding match for ravioli with fish and lemon sauce, handmade pasta with truffles, and grilled meats. After some years of bottle aging, enjoyable with mature cheeses.
