Col Moenia – Gambellara Doc Classico

Gambellara Col Moenia Doc is my first wine entirely produced with Garganega grapes. The best grapes are harvested manually by mid October and are brought to the winery using crates. The wine matures with its own yeasts in stainless steel tanks, and periodically I do a battonage. Since vintage 2011 the fermentation occurs spontaneously with winery yeasts and without adding sulphur. This product has a good body but it is still delicate, with a good balance between acid and softness. Col Moenia is the authentic expression of my grapes.
