This bottling is made up of predominately Glera with small amounts of older varieties such as Bianchetta and Perera. The sloping vineyard is located in Monfumo, at 250-300 meters above sea level. The grapes are soft-pressed with a pneumatic press followed by static racking of the must and temperature-controlled fermentation with cultured yeast. The wine ages 3 months on the lees in tank for added finesse and complexity. Secondary fermentation uses the Martinotti method (Charmat method) in pressure tank at low temperatures between 40 to 50 days.
Aromatically the wine lifts with fine fizzy bubbles and notes of golden apples and ruby red grapefruits. On the palate the wine is elegant, with bright acidity, with a lingering creaminess.
