Grape Varieties Rabigato, Malvasia Fina, and others
Sourced from old vines at over 600m altitude in the Tua Valley, Northern Cima Corgo. The 80yo vineyard has a higher proportion of Rabigato and Malvasia Fina than those he uses for the 'regular' white. This adds a little more in acidic structure from the Rabigato and aromatic elegnace from the Malvasia. Feeling the increased potential of this wine, Pedro ferments and ages it in frech oak barrels for about 10 months. Only old oak is used, just for the slow maturation and integration, avoiding too much oak influence and 'fatness'.
All of the above is so truly expressed in the wine. It is intense with out being showy, it is racy without being sharp, and it's powerful but elegant. A very good wine that will reward patience, either in the decanter or in the cellar.
