Terroir: “Il Pino” is a 7-acre hillside vineyard sitting at about 885 ft. with western exposure. Located on the Brufa hillside with clayey soil, medium depth and limestone subsoil.
Vinification: After cryomaceration, 30% of the blend is fermented and aged on the lees in barrique for 3 months; the remaining 70% is fermented in stainless steel; the blend is then barrel aged until the following spring. Released about 1 year after harvest.
A bouquet with good complexity with fruitiness (fruit salad, yellow peach and citrus fruit); light, refined note of woodiness on the finish. On the palate the wine is elegant in flavor, with a delicate, citrus-like acidity; with a fruity and slightly mineral, persistent finish.
