Wine maker notes
100% Pinot Grigio. The harvest occurs around the middle of August at night in order to preserve the fragrance of the grapes. Collected from the grapes at the beginning of technological maturation in order to preserve the acidity and freshness. De-stemming and pressing of the grapes, and extremely soft pressing is used in order to avoid extraction of color. There is natural settling, then fermentation at a controlled temperature of 60 degrees for 10 days. Maturation occurs on its lees for 5 months.

Food pairing
Pairs well with antipasto of raw fish and shell-fish dishes. Optimal with mixed fried food.
