Grape: Trebbiano/San Colombano
The grapes for this traditional wine hail from some of the oldest vines within Albo del Carmignano and grow upon beds of schist and clay. The grapes are left to dry according to natural methods on straw mats from the moment of the harvest until the following February. The yields are very low, about ¼ of the original weight of the grapes. Vinification then takes place in small chestnut and cherry casks and wine is aged there for 5 years before resting in the bottle for at least three months prior to release.
Aromatically, this wine is complex and fruit-driven, with notes of dried plums, candied apricots, orange peel and yellow flowers. The palate is soft and honeyed, full of candied fruit flavors and a pleasing acidity.
