Franco-sandy, from a single vineyard
When fully ripe, the grapes are harvested by hand, in crates. The unstemmed bunches are gently pressed in an inert atmosphere. After cold decantation, the must ferments at a controlled temperature.
The wine ages partly in cement for 6 months with weekly suspension of the fine lees, partly in French oak tonneaux with regular batonnage. Maturation is completed in the bottle for another 2 months.
It has a golden-yellow color, the scents are enveloping and elegant, with a particular citrus note and the typical varietal scent of hazelnut, complemented by a touch of salt and mineral. On the palate, the fruit is ripe, with citrus returns, for a fresh and structured sip with a long and savoury finish. Macchia Sacra is a harmonious wine, which can evolve and acquire complexity over time.
With seafood dishes, but also tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, truffle risotto, noble poultry, rustic cakes and cheeses
