||The vineyard is about 250 meters (825 feet) a.s.l. with a south-southwestern exposure.
|Composition of the land
||Sandy soils of little depth stratified with layers of gravel and of clayey sands.
||The harvest began on October 1st and finished on October 5th.
||The grapes, once in the cellars, were destemmed and pressed and the period of skin contact lasted ten days at maximum temperatures of 29 °C (84 ° Fahrenheit). The malolactic fermentation was completed before the onset of winter.
||Aging took place partly in 70 hectoliter oak casks and partly in 60 gallon oak barrels used twice previously. The wine was given a further four month period of bottle aging in the Prunotto cellars before commercial release.
||Being such a round and elegant wine, is very versatile and a perfect match for hot antipasti, first courses and light meat dishes.
