Production: The grapes come from a manual harvest from the rows selected in the Coste UGA and then dry for about 40 days in the loft. The subsequent soft pressing is followed by the fermentation of the must in steel tanks which takes place at a controlled temperature between 16 and 18 degrees. After staying on the skins for a few days, the "1st Hectare" continues with aging in concrete tanks for about 12 months. The wine is then bottled where it will rest for at least 9 months before being released on the market.
Service temperature: 12 -14 ° C
The nose opens with a distinct hint of dried fruit, apricot and pear above all, followed by the minerality given by the volcanic soils and the balsamic quality of rosemary and sage. On the palate it is an enveloping wine, with a distinct acidity and a remarkable aromatic persistence after swallowing.
After-meal wine, from mediation. Some traditional combinations can be made with Venetian-style liver or bigoli with sardines or with aged cheeses.
