A dessert wine of incredible intensity and depth. Golden nectar in the glass with delicious ripe pineapple and marmalade fruit. The wine has the correct acidity to balance the sweetness.
Marco Sartori is a driven young man. In a few short years he has gone from making his first vintage to one of the hottest new talents in the region. All the wines produced by this modern new winery are world class. Marco's philosophy is very simple, reduce the yields in the vineyard to 1Kg per vine and you obtain fabulous fruit concentration.
The soil is composed of volcanic clay.
The super ripe Garganega grapes were picked and dried for five to six months in a humidity and heat controlled area of the winery. The "raisins" were then pressed and fermented and aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.
