This vineyard is located between Peschiera and Desenzano, the southern area of Garda Lake.  The must for this wine is obtained with a light pressing and is fermented with the natural yeasts of the grape itself in stainless steel tanks. The bottles stand in racks for 18 months and the wine evolves and matures. The bottles are then placed on the pupitres, clarified by riddling, remuage, and then the deposit is removed by dégorgement.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a sharp, encompassing aroma derived from grapes of perfect richness. The clean bouquet gives soft, encompassing impressions of pear and apple with persuasive shades of peach and citrus fruits. There is a balance of full flavor on the palate, effervescent and delicate. It is characterized by a silky vein of acidity that gives it an extremely clean taste.

Food Pairing

It is excellent as an aperitif and with all meals.
