||The soil has a medium density structure that is crossed by drainage layers of gravel and siliceous matter.
||Manual. First ten days of September.
||Only the best grapes are selected to produce Opimio. Collected by hand and placed in small 13-15 kg boxes, the Pinot Bianco grapes are promptly transported to the cellar. Keeping the grapes at a low temperature allows the achievement of an exceptional concentration and aromatic complexity. After one day and one night the whole bunches are subject to soft pressing. The resulting first-pressing must is fermented with the help of selected yeasts at a controlled temperature ranging between 16° C and 18° C.
||Fermentation and aging take place in 25 hl elliptical oak barrels. After a long ripening of 8 months on the yeasts, Opimio ages in bottle for further 6 months.
||It is best expressed with fish starters, first courses with delicate sauces, shellfish and white meats.
