Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) The wise use of some plots of land owned by Petra results in a fresh, easy-to-drink wine of quality reflecting the soil in which the vines grow. The vineyards are located at the foot of the hills, some in the Suvereto and some in Riotorto area. The soil is predominantly clay and sand, the reason for the choice of this variety that gives a light, aromatic wine. The grapes are picked by hand from late August onwards and, to bring out their fruity nature, are left to macerate for just 7 to 10 days. Fermentation and refinement take place in steel-and-concrete vats and large barrels.

    Honey? Drier with food. Maybe some green pepper, which isn't great in a cab.
