Vinification

Vinification

Manual late harvest, choosing the bunches and arranging them in crates to guarantee their integrity. The grapes are then laid out on racks in a ventilated room, where natural drying takes place, for 2-3 months, with a consequent concentration of sugars. Follows soft pressing, Must clarification and fermentation directly in oak or chestnut caratelli (little barrels). Vinsanto ages for at least 4 years in caratelli sealed with sealing wax, placed in a local attic, subject to sudden changes in temperature. The variations in temperature cause blocking and restarting of the fermentation several times, prolonging it for months. Once a high alcohol content has been reached, the process stops definitively, with a certain residual sugar content.
