A wine produced out of the grapes of our vineyard and bottled in our estate.
Dedication and transparency to bottle the essence of a magnificent island.
After the harvest by hand exclusively and a careful selection, the grapes are gently worked in the press (soft pressing). The free-run must, clarified within 12 hours, is slowly fermented under controlled temperature (16°) and then aged in steel tanks in the following 5 months. The wine is then bottled in our estate and then aged in bottles for 12 months. Elegance, delicacy and absolute singularity are the characteristics of the Capri D.o.c. of Scala Fenicia. A white wine produced from native grapes and vinified in steel at a controlled temperature to preserve the varietal tones. It has a light gold color slightly tinged with greenish reflections, with a deep and composite perfume, persuasively citrusy, with hints of cedar, wild flowers and broom. In the mouth, it has a pungent, airy, savory freshness. Finally, the pronounced minerality gives completeness to a very pleasant sip.
