This wine is made from Glera, Veradiso and Pino Bianco grapes grown on the steep hills of the Bisol Vineyards. The first two varieties enjoy an ideal habitat in the clay-laden earth with subsoil of marine sandstone known as “crede” that is common to this part of the countryside. This type of terrain is particular and beneficial to the grapes, which do not suffer from aridity during critical periods but instead become notably enriched with noble acids, varietal aromas and fruitiness.
