Description: AU, as the symbol of gold, is the wine’s name. The first vintage bottled dates back to 1995. Curated by the unforgettable cellar master Alvaro and his wise hands, it has been lovingly stored by us. “AU” is a white raisin wine made from Grechetto, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Garganeca grapes. Smooth and harmonic taste, “AU” goes perfectly with aged cheeses or dry pastry. Sublime as meditation wine.

Vinification: On December, grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, fermentation in stainless steel at 22°C. Ageing: barrels 20 years before bottling.
