After harvesting, the Vermentino is whole bunch pressed, cold-settled overnight then racked and fermented in stainless-steel by wild yeasts – the temperature of the fermentation is initially controlled at around 16C, ensuring a long, slow fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is left on its lees for 5 months before being lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
Clear, quite polished pome fruit nose with a hint of stone fruit, floral nuances, hints of smoke and vegetal hints. Ripe, juicy fruit with slightly herbal-vegetal, nutty and floral aromas, fine acidity, some grip and at the same time a certain melting, mineral notes in the background, some warmth, delicate dark fruity nuances in the background, good to very good, tart finish.
