Vinification

Vinification

The vintage for Vinsanto is hand-made and with a particular care in order to select the best and healthiest grapes. The grapes are laid in dry and airy rooms for a two month period in order to make them dry free from any mould aggressions. After this period, the dried grapes are pressed gently. The must obtained is poured in little barrels usually called “caratelli” for fermentation, placed in mansard rooms where the fermentation is alternated (because of the exposure to varying temperatures – hot in the summer, cool in the winter). This particular process makes it possible for the fermentation to last as long as four years.
