Vinification and ageing

partially vinified and aged in barriques; the wine remains on fermenting yeasts for about 6 months before being bottled to complete the maturing process. It is released for sale after at least 6 months in bottle

Note

thanks to meticulous care in the vineyard and very particular vinification, supervised almost obsessively, even in these lands which traditionally produce red wines, it is possible to obtain a rich and potent white, capable of ageing for many years and giving authentic emotions, which almost surprise even the most demanding palates

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: more or less bright straw yellow depending on the vintage

Bouquet: the most fanciful scents of ripe fruit and an excellent mineral quality emerge, together with optimal freshness

Flavour: warm and expansive, it envelops the palate with gentleness and character, ending with a lingering aftertaste; undoubtedly blessed with the structure provided by the Langa soils

It is best to serve it at temperatures between 12-15°C

This wine belongs to the ranks of structured whites, capable of evolving and improving as time goes by. It is very good with saltwater and some freshwater fish dishes, such as trout. The combination with white and red meats is exceptional when they are cooked slowly with delicate spices
