Trellising and pruning:
adaptable to different trellis and pruning systems but performs best on the Guyot-type trellis.
Resistance to diseases and adverse conditions:
excellent resistance to downy (Rpv 12) and powdery (Ren 3) mildew. Reduced sensitivity to botrytis and anthracnose. Good winter hardiness with resistance up to -23°C.
sugar accumulation is good with average acidity. The aromatic profile shows a good intensity of volatiles with notes of white flowers as well as glycosides providing notes of pear and almond which are typical of the parent Tocai Friulano. The aromatic ampleness is mostly due to fruity and spicy aromas, which were greatly appreciated during the sensorial analysis. It is suitable for the production of young wines or wines with short periods of refining.
