Friuli Aquileia, DOC Superiore
Cervignano del Friuli
Vinification and maturation
The ripe and healthy grapes are pressed immediately after harvesting, and the must is then stored for 24 hours at a temperature of 5°-7°C. (41°-45°F.), in order to enrich it with the aromatic substances contained in the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation ensues, followed by a longish period of maturation on the wine’s own natural lees.
Pale straw-yellow with greenish hints.
Fresh and intense, with suggestions of green peppers, elderflowers and sage.
Fresh, attractively fruity and persistent.
Serve at 9°-10°C (48°-50°F).
Its elegant structure makes it ideal with shellfish, non-meat appetizers, and pasta and rice dishes containing seafood.
