Wine tasting notes

Light gold in colour with complex aromas of ripe stone fruit such as apricot and peach with notes of white flowers. On the palate, the fresh, citrus character is rounded out by the vanilla notes from the oak ageing and complemented by a nervy, mineral quality. The long finish is floral and fragrant.

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2011) - 16.5 pts

40% Pinot Bianco, 30% Pinot Grigio, 30% Chardonnay. Grown on limestone at 350 m above sea level. 7,000 vines/ha. Pruning: guyot. Yield 45 hl/ha. Vinification: oak barrels and 3,000-litre oak casks. 10 months in oak. Bottle aged for one year. pH 3.48. TA 5 g/l, RS 1 g/l. Annual production 15,000-20,000 bottles. Organic. Reminds me of a Friulano-dominated blend in Friuli with its strong green streak and interesting assemblage. They report that the vintage is now two weeks earlier than it used to be – except for 2013. Big round fruit with creamy texture. No shortage of alcohol!
