Number 84 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!

Brilliant straw yellow colour with a green tint. Very fine, fruity (apples, peaches), forward varietal aroma. Pronounced, clean, elegant, grapey flavour, light to medium-bodied with a fresh mouthwatering finish.

When properly cellared, this wine may be kept for at least 3 - 5 years. As an aperitif, with starters, salads, asparagus, all kind of seafood and pasta dishes.

Vineyards in the Salorno and Buchholz area at 300 to 450 metres (990 - 1,480 feet) altitude. Sandy and stony soil. Quite cool mesoclimate. 70 hl / ha Fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by maturation on the fine lees or 4 months.
