Production

The 5ha Campo Fiorito vineyard is located on the north-east facing slopes of the 60 ha estate of Il Cascinone, in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte (planted in 1998). This cooler site is perfect for the slower maturation needed to produce fresh whites. Grapes are typically harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September. Around 15% of the wine was fermented and aged in French oak barriques for added richness and complexity.

Tasting notes

A delicate nose of ripe stone fruit. The palate is fresh and well balanced with ripe peach characters, a broad mouthfeel and a touch of minerality.

Food match

Match with white meats in cream sauces, or perhaps avocado salads.
