80% Trebbiano, 20% Malvasia Bianca planted in 1970 to soils rich in gravel and clay. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested at the end of September. The clusters are dried on mats till December/January in order to reach a sugar concentration of 380 grams/litre minimum. Soft pressing. The must is racked into small oak barrels (capacity 200 litres). Barrels are filled by 75% and sealed as soon as the fermentation starts. “”Madre”” (yeast sediment form previous vintages) of the “Fattoria di Lucignano” is left in the barrels. The barrels are opened after approximately 8 years of maturation. Average no. bottles/year: 5000
