This wine is made from California-grown Teroldego grapes, a rare varietal with origins in Northern Italy. The grapes were sourced from San Joaquin Valley, spent 12 days on skins, and fermented completely dry. This wine spent 10 months in neutral French oak barrels to preserve its juicy, refreshing characteristics.
