Classification

V.Q.P.R.D. Controguerra D.O.C. Pecorino.

Origin

The vineyards are located in the municipality of Controguerra, 250 metres a.s.l.

Composition of subsoil

Rather fresh medium-textured soil, tending to clayey.

Grape

100% Pecorino.

Characteristics of plant equipment

The Pecorino vineyard is trained with a vertical trellis system with a density of approximately 5,600 stocks per hectare. The rows are south-west oriented.

Times of harvest and wine-making

The Pecorino grapes are hand-picked, after an accurate selection, during the second decade of September, depending on the climate conditions. Grapes are stemmed and very softly crushed; the must is statically decanted before being poured into thermo-conditioned stainless steel tanks to ferment at a controlled temperature ranging between 16° and 18°C. Approximately 10% of the must is fermented 4 months in barriques so to release a moderate “boisè” and a finer character.

Organoleptic characteristics

Colour: straw yellow with greenish highlights.
Nose: fine, fragrant, rich in ripe fruit and white flowers tones, almond, field herbs, citrus fruits, slightly spicy.
Flavour: it well fills the mouth, powerful, very persistent, a correct balance between structure and softness, thanks to freshness and sapidity that accompany the long finish. A wine of a good longevity.

Serving
