Description

Straw yellow color and vigorous pearls. Sparkling and engaging with evidence of sweet almond, herbs like eucalyptus and myrtle. Then it opens with the fruit, green apple, and pear skin. Fresh palate, very smooth.

In the Greek culture, being “Filòs” is to be a friend, to win a friendship. To participate in a “Filos” is to tell a story. To meet for a “filòs” is to celebrate together. “Filòs” by night, like fireworks in the sky in Venice.

The wine is produced from Garganega grapes, harvested at the beginning of September and carefully selected to ensure that only ripe and healthy berries are used. They are destemmed, macerated on the skins and pressed softly. They must undergo cold, static settling and then fermentation at controlled temperatures. The secondary fermentation lasts almost four months and takes place in a sealed steel tank so allowing the carbon dioxide that develops naturally during fermentation to remain combined with the mass of wine so initiating the sparkling process. The product is then filtered one last time and after a cold standing period of 10 days (at minus 2° centigrade) it is bottled (Italian method).

This is a pleasant Brut from Garganega grapes that are born on the volcanic rocks of Soave. The perfect wine to enjoy and celebrate with friends.
