Pinot Grigio. Vintage 2009 yield: 85 q/ha. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the bunches.

The grapes were picked from August 28th through September 4th, only in the early morning hours to avoid high temperatures. Soft pressing was followed by an overnight decanting of the juice to allow the settlement of rough impurities, at a temperature of 12-14°C, without any use of SO2. The juice was then aerated a few times to remove in a natural way the pink colour of this variety. Fermentation took place during 17 days at temperatures between 18 and 20° C. Early bottling in the end of January.
