Production

The grapes grow in south-west-facing vineyards in the Asti region of Piemonte. After harvesting the grapes are gently crushed and left to settle. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves the bright fruit flavours, while three months lees ageing adds depth and texture to the final wine.

Tasting notes

Aromas of fresh green apple, lime peel and grapefruit lead onto the palate, where a hint of honeysuckle and almond add finesse and subtle minerality lifts the finish.
