Winery Notes: 70% Trebbiano and Malvasia, 30% Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio; The harvested grapes were destemmed and given a soft pressing, The must was then chilled to a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to allow a natural depositing of the impurities in the must. After 48 hours the fermentation began in stainless steel tanks, and continued at temperatures which were held to peaks of no more than 64° Fahrenheit (18° centigrade). The preparation of the wine in small batches before bottling maintained excellent freshness and fragrance in a wine of 12° alcohol.
