Wine Description

This wine is produced with select grapes, heavily influenced by the terroir. The plots of land where the vines grow have limited organic matter; they are granite-based and stone soils. These soils are atypical for the region and support a better maturation of the grapes, producing a delicate and complex wine that brings together local and innovative elements.

Nora da Neve is barrel-fermented following the Burgundian method. A batonnage is carried out for 5 months, which gives body and complexity to the wine without affecting the variety's subtle nature.

Tasting Notes

Bright, straw-yellow color with golden shades, resulting from the aging process. Intensely aromatic with notes
of ripe fruits, such as peach and tangerine as well as white flower aromas coupled with hints of bay leaf, fennel and butter strewn over a subtle underlying spiciness. The complexity of this wine is intensified on the palate, where it is silky, full-bodied and fresh at the same time.
