Our Passerina Colle Trà derives from an ancient bunch clone, "spargolo" or "loose bunch", the so-called "Trebbiano scienciato". Compared to the compactness of the traditional grape, the "spargolo" is of elongated shape and is less subject to rot, which can be caused by humidity. The Passerina must undergo a process of spontaneous fermentation triggered by indigenous yeast, like all the wines in the Colle Trà line.

HARVESTING and WINEMAKING
Hand-picked with a careful selection of the grape bunches, soft pressing, spontaneous fermentation and aging on the lees for 6 months. This product does not undergo any stabilizing treatment or filtering in order to preserve its natural evolution and integrity. For this reason, the wine may not be perfectly limpid and there may be a slight deposit at the bottom of the bottle.
Ideal with seafood and clams. Delicate dishes of meat and vegetables.
