|Composition of the land
||The land has perfect aspect and position, black with lava sands and due to this extraordinarily rich in minerals; surrounded by woods and more recent lava flows.
|Yield x hectare
||Carricante 70 quintal. Riesling 60 quintals.
||Carricante 15-25 October. Riesling 5 October.
||The grapes are picked into crates and immediately refrigerated at 8⁰C, selected by hand and sent for light destalking and soft pressing; the decanted must is racked, inoculated with yeasts and fermented at 15 ⁰C in inox stainless steel; the wine thus obtained remains on the fine lees until March with continuous stirring.
|| An extraordinary companion for dishes based on fish of a certain oiliness and thus ideal for any gastronomic experience encountered by the sea.
