Grape Varieties and Blend: 40% Inzolia – 30% Grillo – 30% Catarratto
Vinification: Picked during the night, the crop was refrigerated before the operations of de-stemming and pressing. The three varieties ripen in different periods and were fermented and aged differently: Grillo and Catarratto went through a short (4-6 hour) cold maceration and then fermented for 18 days in small oak barrels where it remained on its lees for eight months and was put through a complete malolactic fermentation. The Inzolia, instead, fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. After blending and bottling, the wine aged for ten months.
Eight months in oak barrel.
