TASTING NOTES
A wine with a crystalline colour, straw yellow. The nose is characterized by a remarkable intensity and olfactory persistence, rich in ripe flowers and yellow fruit. A very intense and persistent wine, with a great body and an important structure combining the elegance and balance of the Pinot Grigio with the taste potential of the Gewürztraminer. It has an intense, persistent bouquet of lush flowers and citrus fruits. This is confirmed also on the palate, rich in body and structure. 
Serving temperature: 10-12°C

WINEMAKING
The grapes used are not typical of Tuscany. Yet, the terroir elevation, and ots soil, bringthem to an amazing performance
Grapes are left to ripen on the vine for a longer time, the manual harvest is scheduled towards the middle of September. The grapes are gently de-stemmed and pressed. Fermentation follows partly in new 500-liter French oak tonneaux with indigenous yeasts. Batonnage is made every day for the first month and later 3 times a week for the second month, 2 times a week for the third, and 1 time a week during the last month. The wine is then bottled and refined another 6 months before being marketed.

VINTAGE NOTES
2019: a 5-star harvest. On a meteorological level, 2019 alternated two intensely rainy periods, April-May and November-December, with a period, June-October, mainly dry but characterized by short and intense rainy events. The wines of 2019 are very interesting and the quality is very good. Intense colours, excellent varietal aromatic expressiveness, concentration and a tannic texture of exquisite workmanship.

In Greek mythology, the mountainous district of Nysa (Greek: Νῦσα), was the traditional place where the rain nymphs, the Hyades, raised the infant god Dionysus, the god of wine.

"After a dream met a terroir, I took care of it so that you could finally drink it"
- Franco Bernabei, Oenologist -
