Alcohol: tipically 13%
Only the first pressing of the grapes from our Ortale vineyard is used for this, our Cantina’s “cru” of Greco. This free run juice is the best possible and it is fermented with great care using selected yeasts, in temperature controlled tanks, the wine rests on the lees for 9 months to add structure and complexity. Malolactic conversion is partial depending on the natural acidity of the vintage. Before bottling, the wine is lightly filtered and then it is stored at cellar temperature for a year, until we judge it to be ready for the market.
Straw-yellow, with aromas of flint and fresh sea breezes. Full and intense on the palate with honey, acacia and barley. A stunningly complex wine.
Well suited to fish and especially to sea food dishes.
Serving temperature: 10 – 12 °C
Only 5000 bottles of this wine have been made. These are the first steps in presenting the mosaic of terroirs of the village of Tufo, each with its own features. This is the purest expression of the plot where the Ortale vineyard is located.
