GRAPES:

Fiano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio – 1/3 each


VINEYARD AREAS:

All three grape varieties are selected from low-yielding, organically grown vineyards in the provinces of Taranto and Brindisi, in the region of Puglia, southern Italy.


PLANT TRAINING:

The vineyards are all trained using the guyot method.


HARVEST:

The grapes are carefully picked by hand at different times between mid-August and mid-September; starting with Pinot Grigio and ending with Fiano.


VINIFICATION:

The three grape varieties are vinified separately using the same technique. The grapes are de-stemmed and delicately pressed. The must is then chilled to 10’C and left to rest for approximately 24 hours. Each variety is then placed in separate stainless-steel tanks for fermentation, which is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 16°C.
Following fermentation each grape variety is left to rest on their lees for 3 months.
The three grape varieties are then blended together in equal proportion in February.


ALCOHOL:

12,5%
