The grapes were gently pressed and the press and free run juices were separated. The must was settled at 14°C for 24 to 36 hours before being fermented at controlled temperatures of 18 to 20°C with selected yeasts. The wine spent six to eight months on the fermentation lees, which were kept in suspension with period stirring, imparting texture and flavour.

Winery

The Castello di Buttrio vineyard is situated on the hillside slopes at 142 metres above sea level, which ensures excellent air circulation to keep the vines healthy. The Guyot trained Ribolla Gialla vines range from 10 to 60 years in age and are planted in terraces to improve vineyard management. The soils are made up of layers of marl and sandstone of Eocene origin, known locally in Friulian, which contains marine fossils originating from the bottom of what is now the Adriatic Sea. This soil produces textured and concentrated wines which are balanced by cutting acidity, thanks to the soil high pH and cool temperature. The vines are cultivated using integrated agricultural methods, with low environmental impact to protect the land, encourage biodiversity and allow the grapes to express the terroir. The ideal diurnal temperature range at harvest time enables the grapes to reach optimal ripeness, with lovely balance between sugar, acidity and aromatic ripeness - at which point the fruit is carefully harvested by hand.
