We use the double Guyot training system. Plant density is approximatly 4700 vines per hectar and yield per hectar is around 80 q/ha.
Harvested last week of September, grapes
are destemmed and crushed then left to macerate with their
skins for 24 hours. The juice is matured on fine lees with frequent battonage and then left to age in stainless steel tanks for 6 months before being bottled and left to further age in the bottle.
Complex floral bouquet with notes of bitter almonds, it has a harmonous flavour with a refreshing acidity.
Best served with marinated duck breast, risotti with wild mushrooms, pasta with pesto sauces as well as fresh oysters.
