The Pinot Grigio grapes that make up this wine are grown on guyot systems. Located in the municipality of Montagna, the vines are from half way up to high hills between 350 - 750 metres. The soil is deep and rich with a high content of clay and limestone, which comes from the surrounding mountain erosion. Fermentation occurs in steel tanks and small oak casks. After this the wine is left to age for roughly four months on its lees. This period allows the wine to build up body, depth and structure. An ideal accompaniment to pasta, vegatable dishes and grilled white meat.

Deep straw-yellow in colour, with a fragrant floral bouquet with notes of sage, hay, almonds and sandalwood. After some time in bottle notes of honey develop. On the palate this wine is fresh and full-bodied with great finesse and elegance.
