Alberello trained (bush trained) vines are an average 20 years old, and have been planted with a southern exposure at 250 feet elevation, situated about one mile from the sea. To encourage aromatic depth and flavor complexity, grape yields are low: 3.75 tons/acre. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest is performed to eliminate lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, the vines go through an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch.

Harvest Note
The viticultural season at Feudo Maccari began slightly earlier than normal, the vineyards stimulated by significant spring temperatures began a harmonious and balanced budding, the result of precise pruning and attention to detail. Immediately after flowering, temperatures rose rapidly as early as May, projecting summer weather to the vineyards, which found relief from the water resources of the soils and the winds cooling the vineyards. The harvest began in late August without any particular advances in ripening. The grapes, the highest expression of quality, represent very well the varietal and terroir characteristics.
Tasting Note
Straw yellow with gold shades. Notes of flowers, fruits like yellow peach, hints of sweet almond. Full and rich. Sapid and balanced palate.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with fish tartare, roasted fish, salads, appetizer and starters, white meats
