* grape can be found under pseudonym Sauvignonasse, or sometimes Sauvignon Vert (not same as California vine, which is actually a Muscadelle). It was also mistaken for Sauvignon Blanc in Chile.
WINERY NOTES: Symphony entitled Drop, composed by three artists: Chardonnay, Nekaj, Malvasia Istriana. Each of them donates to the wine its characteristic, contributing to the harmony and balance from the nose to the mouth. The marked olfactory aromaticity of Friulano gives to the mouth the aromatic continuity of the Malvasia, leaving a wide and long final by the round and sapid Chardonnay.
VINIFICATION: The maceration begins in big barrels of oak for 60 to 90 days. After finishing the fermentation, it is aged in 20 or 30 hl barrels for 3 years and rests for 1 year in the bottle.
