  • This delightful wine presents a captivating blend of fragrant floral aromas, succulent golden apples, and exotic tropical fruit notes, all complemented by the unique mineral essence of the native Carricante grape. Its invigorating and crisp nature leads to a delightful, spicy finish. This wine exudes a vibrant and concentrated character, highlighting an exceptional purity that will enchant the senses.

The wine was made reductively, with minimal contact with oxygen, thus reducing the use of sulphur. The grapes were gently crushed and vinified in inert conditions for 12 to 14 days at 14 to 18°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine received seven months' ageing in stainless steel tanks, without oak influence, to preserve the characteristics of the Carricante variety, followed by a minimum of two months of bottle ageing.

Aromatic notes of flowers, golden apples and tropical fruit are accompanied by distinctive mineral overtones typical of the native Carricante grape. Refreshing and crisp, with a lovely, spicy finish.

Winery

The vineyard is approximately 620 metres above sea level, where warm days and cool nights encourage a long ripening period, concentrating the flavours in the grapes while retaining balancing acidity. The vines are grown in volcanic soils rich in minerals and fossils. The soil is permeable to air and water and is rich in pumice stone and microelements, which allow the plants to produce a complex aromatic profile. The espalier-trained vines are spur-pruned. The 10-year-old vineyard is cultivated following organic and biodynamic cultivation principles and is in conversion to organic status. The organic sulphur and copper treatments are only used when powdery or downy mildew seriously affects the vineyard. The vine moth is combatted by using natural pheromones, which generates confusion in the moth and prevents it from attacking the fruit. The natural microbe Bacillus turingensis is used to combat insects; synthetic pesticides are avoided.
