Ageing potential

In order to enjoy its freshness to the full, it should ideally be drunk within a year of the vintage.

Origin of the grapes:

Made from a special selection of grapes from vineyards lying in the upper hills of Farra di Soligo,
Solighetto, Farrò and San Pietro di Feletto. The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone (180 – 300 meters above sea level), and the vine training systems used are “Double-Arched Cane” and “Sylvoz”, with a plant density of 3000-3700 vines per hectare. The vineyards are cultivated directly by LA FARRA.

Yield per hectare: A maximum of 13500 kilos per ha

Harvest: By hand, in the last ten days of September

 

Vinification:

Traditional white wine vinification with soft pressing; fermentation is slow and lasts
approximately 15 days, at a controlled temperature of 18° C; subsequently the wine is racked and then matures at low temperatures in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks for a minimum of 3 months.

 

Transformation into semi-sparkling wine:

This is carried out using the Charmat Method, the process traditionally adopted for delicate,
fruity wines. The prise de mousse takes place in pressurized tanks for some 25-30 days at a temperature of 16-18° C, while maturation (also in these autoclaves) between 2 and 3 months.

 

Serving suggestions:

Excellent as an aperitif and for any social occasion. It goes extremely well with fish dishes and light hors d’oeuvres.

 

Tasting notes

Apperance: Bright straw yellow, with extremely fine, persistent bubbles

Nose: Fresh and elegant, with fruity notes of apples and peaches, as well as hints of acacia blossom

Flavor: Well-balanced and silky, with an attractive zestiness and a dry finish
