Winemaking Harvest is usually from 1st to 2nd week of September, thanks to the insular-mediterranean with mild winters and breezy summers. After the grapes have been picked, the vinification starts with an extremely soft pressing with membrane press, followed by static clarification of the must and fermentation at controlled temperatures (16°-17°C) in stainless steel tanks. 4-5 months in stainless steel tanks in “sur lies,” then in bottle for at least 2-3 months.


Color is straw yellow with greenish reflection, with scents of citrus fruit, pineapple and elderflower. The palate is in line with olfactory sensations, fresh with salinity and minerality. Pairs excellent with first course of fish or fish fry. For Assuli, the attention to the land and to its preservation is imperative. For this reason, our continuous research, expertise and constant desire for excellence have led us to the realization of an experimental vineyard aimed to rediscover ancient grape varieties. The land consists of medium mixture soil, tending to clay with emerging skeleton. Two artificial lakes within the area guarantee the water supply.
