Production

The grapes, harvested by hand in baskets, selected in the vineyard and transferred to the cellar.

The first phase, called as “the destemming”, allows to separate the stem from the grapes. The grapes then will arrive in the lung press to carry out a soft pressing of the bunches; after this phase they will continue the fermentation and vinification process in steel tanks of 50 hl, thermo-controlled.

The decanting and final bottling phases will follow..

Tasting notes

Luca Maroni writes…

Sensations: the varietal of its perfume is crystal clear at the nose. A grape mix for sharpness citrus and pure and rusty oreality. Uncommon level executive oenology, which makes it amplified its wonderful palatal softness. One of the best Cortese in purity of the thousandth.

A wine characterized by an extraordinary floral bouquet, with evident tropical and banana notes. A very elegant white, young wine with a persistent finish and floral aromatic fragrance, smooth and harmonious.

Pairings

Ideal if matched with fish-based dishes such as stewed, shellfish and spaghetti with clams. Excellent with fresh and medium-aged cheeses such as “Raschera” and the “Piedmontese Toma”. Perfect when paired with pasta like “Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe” or “Trofie al Pesto”.

Service temperature: 14 °C
