Characteristics: The wine is aged in French oak barrels for almost 6 months with the contact of its own spent yeast. We stir this sediment (a process called battonage) as this makes for a more complex white wine. Then Bianco Faye is matured in bottle for another 2 years before its release.

Vineyard location: different parcels on the hill of Faedo called: Pianezzi, Coveli and Palai at elevation between 300 and 750 meters above sea level with a south – west exposure. The side is quite airy because of the influence of “Ora” of Lake Garda (wind that comes from the nearly big Lake).
Training system: “pergoletta trentina aperta” with a vine density of 6500 per hectare.
Soil: as regards geomorphology, Faedo is located between the Permian formation of the porphyritical platform and drifts of sandstone, siltstone, loam rocks, limestone and dolomite. The soil is changeable in the depth from 30 to 100 centimeters. It’s muddy – calcareous and on a marly conglomerate.
COLOUR: The color is lovely straw/yellow with greenish reflections.
AROMA: The bouquet is bright and complex with notes recalling vanilla, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, hay, musk and flint.
