In a Nutshell

If you're a fan of fine Chablis then give this a go!

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow with a greenish hue. The wine's aromas of white fruit, stone fruit and lime zest are immediately beguiling and followed by a subtle yet persistent bouquet of green apples. The palate is well balanced with a fresh acidity and good structure. Pleasant almond notes linger on the finish.

Production Notes

2016 saw a hot and dry summer in Piemonte. A cool spring with some rainfall was followed by a hot June and July. Large shifts between day and night time temperatures throughout August helped to balance grape ripening and produce healthy, ripe grapes with refreshing acidity.

The grapes were handpicked and upon arrival at the winery, they were gently pressed, then cool fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 16°C. Unoaked, the wine was bottled in the spring following the harvest.
