Sequoia is a late harvest of Fiano grapes coming from Fonzone Caccese vineyard in Paternopoli.

The particular climatic conditions of the area favor a slow and healthy maturation of the grapes which ends in November, when the grapes, with the presence of botritysed acinous, are harvested and vinified in the respect and exaltation of the varietal characteristics of the grape.

 

A quote of the must is fermented in wood to naturally stabilize the future wine and give it complexity and longevity. The result is a Fiano having harmonious and rich aromatic definition.
