Bico Amarelo 2020
Exuberant aromas, fresh and light, dominated by citrus fruits and tropical notes. Palate is dominated by fresh acidity, with good body and linguering finish.

The agricultural year began colder and with a lot of rain. July was warmer and drier, accelerating ripening and berry development. August had milder temperatures and the rain in the middle of the month was fundamental in restoring the balance of the plants. These conditions allowed for optimum ripeness and concentration to be achieved, while maintaining the characteristic acidity of the region. We began the harvest on 7 September, a week earlier than usual.
Manual harvest, pneumatic pressing of whole grapes. Cold decanting of the must for 24 hours. Fermentation at controlled temperature (10-15‰C) for 12 to 15 days. In contact with the lees, for about 3 months in a stainless steel vat at controlled temperature.
