Product details

  • Exotic and perfumed, with aromas of elderflower and lychee. Silky, cool and mineral with great finesse and depth - suggested not too surprisingly, with lake-caught fish or tangy cheeses.

Press ReviewPress

Aromas of fragrant white blossom, stone fruit, honeydew melon and tomato vine come together on this savory white. The round, medium-bodied palate offers creamy peach, tropical fruit, dried herb and an energizing mineral note. Bright acidity provides freshness and balance. (2015 vintage)

Kerin O'Keefe - 92/100Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Leafy sappy wine. Good citrus and grassy flavours. Clean, elegant, crisp, quaffing wine.

Bronze MedalInternational Wine Challenge 2017

A mouthwatering nose of savoury lemon and lime, the palate is juicy and fresh with lovely zesty fruit and crisp acidity and a very long elegant finish.

Winemaking

The grapes come from the “Le Creete” vineyard in San Benedetto di Lugana, where the soil has a high content of white clay. Vines are trained on the double-bow Guyot system, and grapes are picked between end September and end October, depending on vintage conditions. The harvest and selection are done strictly by hand, in small 17 kg. cases. Most of the juice comes from gently-pressing whole bunches, and a portion is from fruit that has been de-stemmed by gentle oscillation. A strict protocol of vinification follows, with racking for natural sedimentation; slow, temperature-controlled fermentation at between 14°C and 18°C and fining after the wine has spent 6-8 months on fine lees.
