Because of its extremely steep slopes, the Battistelle single vineyard demands exceptional artisanal expertise to grow the revered Garganega. A labour of love.

Well-balanced wine with an enchanting sensory mixture of aromatic herbs, white flowers and citrus fruits. On the palate, the wine has a beautiful structure and important mineral note that testify to the volcanic soil matrix. A long, soft finish with outstanding harmony.

At the beginning of October, the bunches are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and pressed gently and the resulting wort is immediately chilled.

The wine is left to develop on the fine lees with frequent batonnage for between 6-8 months in stainless steel tanks.
