Grapes are harvested by hand when the aromatic
peak, determined by a systematic tasting from August to the second half of September is reached. Part of the grapes are late-harvested adding richness, complexity and over-ripe notes. Steps are taken to exclude oxygen throughout vinification. After destemming and crushing, we allow 4-8 hours of skin contact at 6°C to enhance flavour and colour. During the aging in stainless steel tanks we employ battonage weekly. About 30% of the Friulano takes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in 5 hl tonneaux.
Tové has an intense straw-yellow colour with floral notes, orange peel and apples. On the palate it is both fresh and savoury with apple, citrus, almonds and a touch of honey. It is soft and round with good minerality.
Pair with lean fish, pasta dishes, cured meats
and hard cheese.
