||Hilly interior of the central Marche region, company's own vineyards. Exposure: facing northeast.
||The grapes, which are completely covered by the 'noble mould', are harvested in an exceptionally advanced stage of ripeness (at the end of November – the beginning of December) and taken to the winery in small baskets to avoid damage to the individual grapes.
||The wine is obtained using white wine vinification methods: crushing of whole grape clusters; extraction of the flower must only; must clarification by cold settling; temperature controlled fermentation; tartaric stabilisation refrigeration at -4 °C for 6 days; cold sterile bottling with microfiltration.
||Aging in part in burnt wood barrels and in part in stainless steel tanks where full maturity is reached after 18-24 months. Aging in bottles for at least 6-12 months.
||Excellent with all cheeses, whether fresh or aged, mild or mature, 'di fossa', with herbs, or gorgonzola. It is also ideal with very tasty, distinctive dishes, first courses with cheese and hearty fish dishes, such as stockfish and fish soup, and foie gras. Excellent and very pleasurable as a drink at the end of the evening, or simply for meditating and relaxing.
