The wine has a deep, golden color and fresh aromas of exotic fruit, spices and a note of musk. The wine is full, balanced and elegant on the palate, with finishing notes of fruit and vanilla.

The earlier ripening Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grapes are harvested in late September and placed into wooden crates where they will dry until the Incrocio Manzoni and Chiavennasca are harvested in early October. Vinification is carried out separately for each varietal with a gentle pressing and fermentation and aging in a combination of 50% new and 50% older oak barriques. After eight months in barrel the wine is blended and bottled.
