Castello D'Alba White 2015
Old vines with an average altitude around 550 meters above sea level. We look for more acid grape varieties like Rabigato, or the blend of grapes of the old vines, where low crop levels allows a better balance between flavors and acidity.
Cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16ºC. Very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the prefermentation operations were carried out with great accuracy to preserve the intrinsic quality of the wine. Ageing for 4 months in stainless steel vats.
Very fresh and mineral aroma, citrus and floral hints very typical of high-altitude Douro white wines. Fresh on the palate, vibrant and fruity with medium finish.
