Vineyard Notes: Vineyards are located on volcanic hills with a clayey, chalky, and fresh soil in the Veneto. Grapes are harvested by hand toward the beginning of September.
Winemaking Notes: The Glera undergoes a soft pressing while the Pinot Noir goes through separate, more traditional winemaking. The first fermentation is carried out in steel vats at 59-62 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 days, the second fermentation is carried out in autoclaves for 70-90 days. Once the wine has completed fermentation, it remains on the lees for 10 days with daily baronage to add body and enhance aromas.
Tasting Notes: Bright salmon pink in color and fine perlage. On the palate the wine is soft and fruity, with delicate floral aromas and a finish on a smooth dry note, which balances perfectly with the initial light sweetness.
