Production techniques and vinification

 

The production of this wine involves a high quality of the processed grape given not only by a healthy, analytical appearance, but by a certain organoleptic conviction, too. 

Our long-standing experience has led us to choose a single vineyard, among our 20 hectares, ideal for achieving our final result.
The grapes, collected in boxes, are pressed to obtain a must which, once clarified, is fermented.
At an alcohol content of 5% by volume, part of this partially fermented must is transferred into barrels, where all the sugars are extracted.


After slow static settling and distancing from the largest lees,
the aging process can begin and continue for several months.


The fusion of this wine from barrels with that left in stainless steel tanks gives an energetic but elegant and fresh wine.
This wine is 100% handmade.
