A superb vintage, with exceptional weather conditions especially for Grillo grapes. A mild winter followed by a very hot summer with very dry winds allowed a harmonious phenological development. The few rains of early September allowed a perfect ripening phase and the fruit picked in late September was splendid in sugars and perfumes.
Destemming, maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature of 20-25C° in stainless steel vats for approx. 7 days with frequent delestages. When all the sugars are developed, skin maceration continues for another 7 days for optimal tannin extraction, very important for the ageing process. Alcohol up to 19% is then added. Ageing in Slavonian casks, French barriques.
