Picol de legno - Brigaldara
Picol de legno - Brigaldara

Picol de legno derives from the selection of the most amber grapes on Garganega's vines, an old clone characterized by the lignification of the petiole during the maturation process. Late harvest contributes to add structure to the wine, following skin maceration and soft pressing of the must. Fermentation is done at 13°C temperature.
