Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

Grapes are grown in south-facing vineyards in the steeply sloping hills of Santo Stefano Belbo where the white soil is packed with calcareous marl, and has an alkaline pH. The vineyard’s distinctive qualities are brought out in the explosion of aromas that are strongly reminiscent of the smell of fresh muscat grapes.

Tasting notes
Color - Pale gold with golden highlights Bouquet - Delicate hints of ripe pear, white peach, honey, linden and orange blossom, sage and lemon. Taste - Full-bodied with a sweetness nicely balanced by refreshing acidity.

Wine maker notes
Vines are guyot trained with plant density at 6,000 plants/ha. In the end of August, beginning of September, the grapes are picked by hand, with a part being pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, while the remainder are de-stemmed before undergoing brief maceration in a temperature controlled tank, where they are kept for approximately 12 hours at a temperature of 41F. Very gentle pressing extracts only the free-running juice from the grapes, separating it from the solid parts. The fermentation begins when the temperature arrives at 64F, and is brought to an end when 3 degrees of alcohol have been reached.

Technical notes
5.5% abv

Food pairing
Very enjoyable on its own, it is also a perfect match for many types of desserts
