100% Pinot Grigio from 26 year-old North-east facing vines planted in limestone and marl Ponca 180 metres above sea level. Hand harvested in September, destemmed and left on skins in Slavonian oak for 15 days. Spontaneous ferment then aged for 2 years in large Slavonian oak and a further year in stainless steel. Bottled without filtration and aged for a further year in bottle prior to release,13.5%. The unique microclimate of the site  makes it possible to take a natural approach in the vineyard, with the ventilation provided by the Adriatic and Alpine winds protecting from disease. Treatments of copper and sulfur are used only when necessary to protect against downy and powdery mildew, vineyards are fully grassed in order to protect biodiversity and retain moisture, yields are low in order to achieve perfect ripeness.
