SEASON 2023
The 2023 season had completely different connotations compared to previous harvests. Between November and February there were constant rains and good snowfalls in the Alpine and pre-Alpine areas, in particular Monte Baldo remained white until the end of March. Budding began in line with the 2022 vintage, in fact, the first cottony buds showed themselves around March 14th. Until the end of April, the climate was mild and windy, allowing the vine to sprout constantly and gradually. From May onwards, however, heavy and constant rainfall occurred, heralding a season that would not be easy from an agronomic point of view. The development of the bunch was slowed down by the sudden vegetative push of the vine, resulting in a delay of around 15 days compared to the 2022 vintage. Complete veraison occurred with a strong general delay, leading the grapes to accumulate high point of acidity until the end of September. Fortunately, as with the last 2 years, the harvest was accompanied by a phase of general good weather, in fact the months of September and October proved to be dry and constantly windy. The first bunch was harvested on the night of September 6th and the extraction of the first musts demonstrated the particularity of the season. The rainy and cool climate characterized the vintage, making it unique from the point of view of gustatory and aromatic freshness.
HARVEST
15th SEPTEMBER TO 23rd SEPTEMBER
VINIFICATION
The selected grapes, once in the winery, are destemmed and put directly into the press. After a soft pressing, the must is kept at 10°C and left to clarify naturally through static decantation. The limpid is then taken and fermented at a controlled temperature using selected yeasts. Once obtained, the wine is left to mature for about 4 months in stainless steel tanks, then left to refine in the bottle.
SENSORY ANALYSIS
Straw yellow color with greenish highlights. On the nose expresses floral and fruity notes including white pulp fruit with a small hint of citrus and white flowers. The taste is fresh with a distinct mineral note and a slightly citrus finish.
FOOD PAIRINGS
Perfect as an aperitif, it goes well with grilled or stewed fish dishes, especially lake fish such as pike and whitefish. Also excellent paired with pasta dishes with delicate fish sauces. Serving temperature between 7/8°.
