The grapes used to make this wine come from vineyards in the Tortona Hills, sheltered (or perhaps it would be better to say "embraced") by the Maritime Alps on one side, the Apennines on the other and the Ligurian Sea to the south. These vines live and grow among great thermal contrasts between the days and nights, and a constant solar illumination. It is not by chance that Stefano Daffonchio defines the sun as his "majority partner." We are not far enough north to borrow the Cernillian definition of "wine of light" for Derthona di Terralba, but it certainly shines a lot of light - even at the bottom of the glass.

VINIFICATION: To create this fantastic wine we start with de-stemming and maceration on the skins for 2-3 days, soft crushing with a horizontal press, fermentation of the must in steel tanks with periodic batonnage.

TASTING NOTES: Full bodied white wine. Golden yellow in color, with intense aromas. In the nose it is driven by fruity notes and hints of peach, acacia and hawthorn, with some beeswax and mineral notes. This follows through on the palate, with flavors of golden apple, peach, a touch of salinity, beeswax & minerals. Full & fresh in the mouth, and full of character.

FOOD PAIRING: Pair this wine with Pastas in cream sauce – especially Spaghetti Carbonara (a match made in Heaven!); this wine also pairs very well with Poultry, River Fish, Lean Fish, Shellfish, Mature & Hard Cheeses, & Cured Meats.
