HOW IT IS MADE
The climactic and meteorological conditions of 2013 were regular and provided the vines with a balanced vegetative cycle, with a gradual maturation over time. The delayed harvest waited for full sugar and phenolic maturation of the grapes.
The typicality and nuances between the various terroirs of the whole country, in a year that revealed itself to be optimum, above all for white wines, were accentuated.
The grapes, collected via a partially nocturnal harvest, are immediately destemmed and carefully passed through the pneumatic membrane press (“soft press”), extracting just the liquid part and avoiding plant components and less valuable components.
From the highest part of the winery, the stainless steel line channels the must that has just been produced “by gravity” and without the use of mechanical pumps into oak vats of 20hl, in which the fermentation is managed under controlled temperatures. The line is protected by nitrogen to avoid any kind of oxidisation and to reduce the necessity of added sulphites.
The refinement of this wine occurs in oak barrels of 20hl for 6-8 months.
Yellow like the fruit of a faraway country, yellow like the broom of these hills. Heat and colour; the juice of the land.
Exotic in its fruits, with pineapples and passionfruit, and in its spices, which evoke vanilla and blond tobacco.
The aromatic bouquet follows the wake of a light fumé gifted by the wood, contoured with a light fragrance of hazelnut and almond, with a fine and elegant base of small yellow flowers.
The strong acid vein guides the sip and the memory of the fruits promised to the nose returns, completed by a light citrus sensation that instils verve and freshness. The splendid calcareous hills of the Marche with the good flavour and the mineral trace that emerges at the end.
First courses that are mainly based on fish or vegetables; second courses that are more elaborate and flavoursome, whether based on fish or white meat, or even grilled dishes.
As an aperitif, suited to cheeses of medium age.
