||70% Garganega, 30% Trebbiano di Soave
||Altitude: 200-300 m. a.s.l., facing north west.
|Composition of the land
||Volcanic soils, tufaceous and basalt rich, from the Eocene era.
||Traditional pergola veronese.
||Hand-picked, often in two harvests to select the ripest grapes. Picking begins in mid-September for Trebbiano di Soave and in October for the Garganega grapes.
||The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed with the free run juice fermented separately between 16-18 °C in glass-lined cement tanks.
||The wine ages in glass-lined cement tanks for a year. During this period, it remains on the fine lees for increased richness and complexity. After bottling, it ages slowly in the bottle for a few months before release.
||It makes an excellent aperitif and partners a wide range of dishes, especially vegetable quiches, delicately-flavoured fish, shellfish and cheese soufflés.
