Tasting Notes

Vineyard Notes
Soil: calcareous mineral base, with high presence of iron dioxides. Such geological characteristics, associated with this scarce endowment of organic and other nutritional elements, forces the vines to a slow vegetative growth, resulting in an extremely low production, with an overall benefit to the MACRO and MICRO components of the grapes, and therefore the wines. Training System: Guyot mono-lateral cultivation technique (with 4-5 buds per cane, resulting in a reduced yield), slight lopping in summer for a better ratio between leaves and grape clusters. No fertilization. Grapes permitted to slightly over-mature (so as to attain very high fixed acidity congenital to the species), calculated in function of the maturation curve. Harvest performed exclusively by hand.
Food Pairing Notes
Versatile in food pairing, it matches perfectly with fried food, tempura and white meat. Try it with chocolate desserts and dry fruit.
