Overview

This elegant white is made from the Friulano grape, which is indigenous to Italy. The grapes enjoy warm days and cool nights at high elevations lending the wine excellent acidity and structured minerality.

Aging

The wine is aged in the bottles for a few months before release at the winemakers discretion.

Fermentation

Some of the must undergoes malolactic fermentation in wooden barrels while the rest is fermented in stainless steel. The wine is left on the lees for 12 months with regular stirring before blended and bottled in September (~1 year from harvest).
