The volcanic nature of the basaltic rock along with the calcareous soils which gave origin to the terrain assures sapidity and particular salinity to these remarkable wines. The Filippi vineyards in Castelcerino are 320-400 metres above sea level (the highest in the region) and the presence of the nearby forest creates an ideal micro-climate which is always ventilated and characterised with good temperature range between day and night. All this contributes to the persistence of perfumes and aromas in the wine. And these are superb wines with beautiful definition and minerality and a naturalness which is at odds with the convention of the region.
Vinified with natural yeast in stainless steel and then aged for six months on the lees. Vibrant golden colour with a yeasty nose of brioche and almond pastry. The wine unfolds to reveal expansive aromas of honeydew melon, peach and mango. The ensemble is completed by a sensation of concentration and finesse.
