Tasting Notes

The ripe, open nose has beguiling aromas of peach, preserved lemon and dried mango, laced with honey and savoury notes. The palate is pure and fresh with great concentration of stone fruit, pineapple and citrus characters and further savoury notes. Good acidity lends a fine, balanced complexity to a citrus finish. Delicious now, but will also develop over 5+ years bottle ageing.

In the vineyard

The grapes are sourced from 'Monte Grande', a low yielding, south-facing vineyard plot on this 14 hectare estate, situated near the town of Monteforte d'Alpone in the Classico sub-zone. The vineyard is at 150 metres above sea level and the soil type is volcanic. The 40 year old vines are trained in the Pergola Veronese system. Vine density is 3,500 vines per hectare and the average annual yield is 90 quintals per hectare. The stems of the Garganega bunches (not Trebbiano) are cut a short time before harvesting to allow the grapes to dry slightly on the vine and concentrate the flavours. The grapes are then harvested in mid October.

In the winery

Selected bunches of grapes are softly pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature of around 18 degrees centigrade. The must is fermented in 15-20hl Allier oak casks for 10 months.

Food Recommendations

Good with a goats cheese, basil and roasted red pepper salad; asparagus or fish such as turbot sprinkled with lemon juice and olive oil. Try too with stir-fried Cantonese dishes featuring fresh vegetables and/or tiger prawns.
