    Salinaro – from the name of the salt pans that dot the coast, whose breezes give a great richness of flavour to the grapes.

    Harvest period starting from mid-August. Reductive vinification with soft pressing and following long fermentation at low temperature. 4 months of ageing in steel.

    In The Vineyard
    Soil composition: calcareous and sandy soil, belonging to the red soils of the Mediterranean; it has a good balance between air and water in the soil, besides a rich water reserve. Altitude: altitude zero above sea level. Climate: located at 800 m from the sea, it is an area which enjoys the mitigating effect of sea breezes which reduce the maximum temperatures.
    Fine scents of citrus fruits blend with strong floral notes of jasmine and orange blossoms on the nose. The palate is fresh and balanced, with notes of grapefruit, citron and lemon, softened by hints of vanilla.
