Fresco di NeroPhilosophy

It is an original interpretation for a fresh wine in the land of Truffles. The dishes with this precious tuber are the best match for this unique wine, and we don’t hide that we designed it by eating the excellent white truffle from San Miniato.

However, it is a very versatile wine, which expresses itself even beyond the noble combination proposed above: it is a cross wine that can also accompany fish dishes but it is also fun if we use it to create fancy cocktails.

Vinification & Maturation

We harvest it a month before its natural ripening to take advantage of the soft acidity of this grape and the fruit that comes from an early ripening.

In the cellar the Fresco di Nero is vinified completely in red with a short maceration on the skins and with spontaneous malolactic fermentation in autumn as for all our reds.
