Grape varierty: 100% Pinot Blanc (Pinot Bianco).
Production area: We only use carefully selected grapes harvested on especially fertile soil with low yields to make this wine. Most of the grapes come our vineyards in Cornaiano, which are planted on moraine soils that are very rich in fossils (porphyritic rock) and that give the wine its typical aroma, fullness and finish. The remaining grapes come the land around Monte in the Town of Appiano, where the soil is fresher than in Cornaiano (as the sun sets earlier here). The silty and clayey soils on a limestone bedrock give the wine freshness and flavour.
Vinification: The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Fermentation in oak barrels of 12 and 15 hl, followed by (partial) malolactic fermentation. Aging on the lees in oak barrells for 12 months, 6 months in the in stainless steel tanks and 6 months in the bottle before we release it as Riserva. Matching: it is a versatile wine for various food.
