Details

Solar wine, result of a special harvest, in which the grapes of White Greco are harvested late, allowing them to assimilate till the last moment, the autumnal sun rays and reach a natural drying of the grapes on the plant. A fascinating wine already in its intense golden color, almost filigree, elegant in its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, splendidly balanced by a captivating acidity

Wine-making technique:
The grapes are destemmed and immediately pressed at a pressure not higher than 1.6 atm, primarily in order to preserve more fresh and fruity feelings. After a 20 days fermentation at a controlled temperature, a cycle of bâtonnage begins in order to resuspend all the noble components of the dying yeast and then get a wider natural softness.

Tasting notes:
Golden yellow color characterized by bright reflections and fluid appearance. It has a nose with fresh notes of dried apricots, peaches in syrup, tropical fruits and very ripe Williams pear. The palate shows wide roundness and good persistance, signs of a complete glycerin and alcoholic presence. Its acid aspect, balanced by a non-excessive sugary note, summarizes the integrity and the maximum attention paid towards all the winemaking phases.
