Vineyard & Vinification Note

Diplomi eco certified (environmental value certificate)

The Citari vineyards cover 25 hectares of gentle, south-facing glacial slopes. The mild climate and the terroir of Lake Garda create the most favourable microclimate for the perfect, traditional maturation of the grapes. The limited size of the vineyards, the harvesting entirely by hand, the careful selection of the bunches and the most modern cellar techniques all combine to enhance the peculiar characteristics of these wines, especially their structure and intense, fruity aromas. Soil: Moraine with a combination of clays and limestone, rich in mineral salts. Vines per hectare: 4,500 n/ha. Harvest: mid-October. Manually picked in small crates, obtained from over-ripe grapes from the oldest vineyards. Vinification: in stainless steel. Maturation: in stainless steel for 7 months, plus six months in new, steam-treated barrel.

Tasting Note

Pale straw yellow colour, with reflections that are greenish when young and tend towards golden as it matures. The nose is concentrated and varied, with fragrances of white flowers and fresh fruit, as well as intense citrusy notes; its breadth, structure and complexity underline the typical characteristics of the variety.

The palate is appealingly well-balanced, whilst also displaying an attractive freshness, marked minerality and notable persistence

Food Pairing

Tasting appetizer, it privileges fine and delicate dishes such as Oyster, fish dishes as well as in structured recipes, also goes with eggs and mild cheeses.
