In a Nutshell

A delicious, fresh and aromatic dessert wine with grapey notes. A wine to make you smile!

Tasting Notes

Sweet and gently sparkling with delicate aromas of honey, flowers and fresh grapes. On the palate the wine reveals further aromatic apricot, stone fruit, grape notes and a soft mousse. Delightful refreshing acidity on the finish to balance the sweetness.

Production Notes

The grapes for are sourced from the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti in the Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south westerly aspect and are at altitudes of between 250 and 400 m above sea level. Vines are grown in limestone-clay soil using the Piedmont low Guyot trellis. The average age of the vines is 30 years and the planting density 4000-4500 vines per ha. Yields are 77 hl per ha. The fruit is hand-harvested between 1st to 12th September and then fermented in pressure tank under temperature control. The fermentation is deliberately stopped by chilling and filtration to retain the luscious natural sweetness.
