Description

VITICULTURE
Enisio Tocco has always had a passion for wine and his Abruzzo homeland coursing through his veins, and he has passed that on to his sons, Lorenzo and Danilo, who now look after the family’s organic vineyards and olive groves in the Pescara hills.
WINEMAKING
The annual organic cycle always ends with the handpicking. A slow and engaging procedure, which ensures grape integrity all the way through to crushing in the cellar. In terms of white wines, Tocco has chosen to process it through the hyper-reduction of oxygen. This procedure protects both the grapes and must and ensures maximum extraction of aromas form the grape’s skin. This way Tocco obtains a wine in which anyone can find primary scents bound to the vine varieties of origin. The wines are then aged in steel to settle. No malolactic is done.
OAK TREATMENT
No.
TASTING NOTE
The wine has a bright straw yellow colour with green hues. The aromas are very intense with pleasant notes of fresh and exotic fruit. It has a full-bodied, fresh taste, with a balanced and intense richness.

Cheese, pork, fish, shellfish.
