Well balanced and elegant on the palate. A deligthful mouth with a nice touch in mid palate and a mineral finish. Pleasant and fragrant nose, characterised by delicate white flowers, fresh citrus and honey touch. High-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectares). Naturel cover cropping to avoid erosion. No insecticides with respect of soil and vine balance, few treatments (depending on weather and the necessary) and small amount of organic fertilizer. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape ripening. Disbudding on the spring. Single plot cuvee. The grapes are picked when fullyripe and hand-sorted. After pressing, they are alcoholic with native yeasts and then malolactic fermented in barrels and big caskwithtemperatures control. 9 month in barrel and big cask, no racking and stirring. ABV 13.5%
