Grape varieties: Vermentino 70%, Sauvignon 30%
Denomination: Bolgheri Bianco DOC
Harvest period: early to mid-September
Vineyards: Costa di Giulia, Querciola
Vinification: the grapes manually harvested go in the press without being de-stemmed. The pressing is slow and soft. The must is decanted at 4-5°C for 2-3 days. After that wine is removed from its lees, temperature is taken to 13°C and inoculated. The fermentation takes place at very low temperature for a very long time, sometimes up to a month.
Fining: in steel tanks on the fine lees for about 6 months. It is filtered and bottled before Easter, but its full expression takes place after the summer.
Alcoholic content: 13%
Longevity: amazing ability to evolve over the years but still we recommend the consumption from the second year onwards.
Originally bottled by Michele Satta - Castagneto Carducci - Italy
