  • This wine is a delightful blend of refreshing and crisp flavours. It greets the palate with enticing aromas of pineapple, golden apples, and subtle spicy notes. Upon tasting, the creamy and fresh texture harmoniously complements the fruitiness while revealing a distinct mineral essence, culminating in an effortlessly elegant finish. The grapes were meticulously destemmed and gently pressed, allowing the juice to naturally decant for 12 to 24 hours. Following this, the fermentation process took place with naturally occurring wild yeasts in a carefully controlled environment, utilizing a combination of stainless steel tanks and amphoras. The wine did not undergo malolactic conversion and was aged for 12 months in amphoras and neutral large Slavonian oak, remaining in contact with the fine lees. A further six months of bottle ageing added an extra layer of refinement, enhancing the wine's overall elegance.

Winery

The Grecchetto di Todi grapes come from a single vineyard, Fiorfiore, in the Todi subregion of Umbria. The microclimate experiences cold and rainy winters and cool, ventilated summers, which help to produce a refreshing vibrancy to the grapes. The vineyard is 300 to 380 meters above sea level, where considerable thermal excursions between day and night allow a slow, gradual ripening of the fruit, encouraging rich fruit flavours balanced by natural acidity. The soils comprise white clay, calcareous marl, chalk, and sand, offering the vines great nutrients and balance. The Guyot-trained vines are carefully cultivated following sustainable and organic principles. Weeding takes place in alternate rows; care is taken to prevent soil erosion and compaction; green manure is used for fertilization; grasses and Cruciferae plants improve soil structure and fertility.
