Production Area: The “Braie” vineyard is the unique link that strongly binds itself to the history of their winegrowers and allows them to bring back childhood memories, when this vineyard was ploughed by oxen. This vine is grown in an area where weather conditions are perfect, making it ideal for this type of cultivation. The vines show the signs of the time gone by and although wine production from these vines is very poor, they are not deliberately removed because every year they give them scions which give then vine cuttings which they use in new graftings. The fermentation process occurs within the grapes skin and indigenous yeasts for 48 hours and by keeping temperature under control. The end product gives emotions that cannot be matched by any other vineyard.
Food matching: This dry white wine perfect is a perfect accompaniment to various dishes especially shellfish, sea food, starters in white sauces, the Genovese pasqualina cake, cima (a staffed pocket of veal) and, ravioli filled with wild herbs.
How to serve and to store: Serve at a temperature of 12°C in long stem medium size wine glasses. Store in the lowest racks of the cellar at a constant temperature between 11 and 14°C.
