The ripe grapes are harvested, destemmed, softly pressed and cold macerated for a few hours with the aim of enriching the must with the characteristic primary aromas of the grapes.
At the end of the maceration, the pressing separates the skins from the must, which is clarified by means of static decanting and it is fermented at a controlled temperature. The new wine, at the end of alcoholic fermentation, is transferred to and stored in steel tanks throughout the winter until the pre-bottling filtration in spring.

Straw-yellow coloured, verging on gold, with very strong, fine aromas of exotic fruit, apple and banana. The mouthfeel shows a good balance, ranging between freshness and softness, with a very elegant aromatic length. Good structure and richness of flavour.

The “fagòt” wine expresses all its qualities and distinctive personality when matched with a wild herb flavoured risotto, vegetable-based meals and all fish, shellfish and mollusc dishes. It is also excellent for aperitifs.

A careful selection of grapes precedes manual harvesting. Cold pre-maceration, lasting a few hours, extracts the aromas that will characterise the wine which will be produced. The must is then separated from the solid parts and static decanting and fermentation at controlled temperature follow. The dry wine remains on the fine lees until it is filtered and bottled.

Straw-yellow tending to golden, intense and characteristic aromas of exotic fruit, yellow flowers and tomato leaf. The mouthfeel is dry, warm, harmonious, with a good softness due to its high alcohol content. Savoury, full-bodied and elegant, it shows the power and distinctive characteristics of the vineyard where its grapes are grown. 

It is ideal to accompany vegetables, creams, purée and vegetable soups as well as salads and it is particularly suited to be paired with asparagus. It is a good match for fresh cheeses, shellfish and fish carpaccio.
