Production area : Castelvecchio is a part of the Karst (Carso) area in the province of Gorizia (Sagrado city). The landscape is typical of the Karst region: arid and rocky soil with a reduced stratum of red sand, but rich in iron and lime-stone. The area is constantly ventilated and influenced by the near sea.
Harvesting and vinification
Manual harvest. Slight grape pressing, alcoholic fermentation and maturation sur lie in steel tanks.
Color Bright straw with green reflection.
Smell Complex smell with vegetal notes typical of the varietal (tomato leaves). Also nice notes of citrus grapefruit, and at the end aromas of white peach. Taste On the palate you can find the same olfactory notes as above. At the end a slight touch salty and mineral typical of the Karst terroir. Ideal with first courses, in particular with fine grilled fish, fish soups and white meat. It finds an interesting combination with Asiatic cuisine, spicy and bitter- sweet dishes.
