Bolgheri is an Italian appellation located in the Maremma on the Tuscan coast just to the south of Livorno. It is known mainly for deeply coloured, supple yet ageworthy red wines, usually based on the Bordeaux grape varieties. The winemaking zone features sloping coastal vineyards close to the Tyrrhenian Sea. The sunny, dry and windy climate of Bolgheri and the stony soils with clayey patches also favor the production of excellent white wines, based on Vermentino and Viogner grapes.

Product obtained from the pressing of the grapes, it is refrigerated to carry out a natural decantation of the must, with subsequent racking and alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature. Aging for 4 months in steel and three months in the bottle, it is a white wine with a straw yellow color with greenish reflections, an intense and complex aroma of fresh white pulp fruits such as banana and pear.
