Features & Pairings suggestions

Vinification

Vinification

The grapes are harvested by hand, selecting the perfect ripening bunches. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperature to save primary aromas; after 8-10 days all the sugars are converted into alcohol. To extract the color and the aromas, the peels that raise to the surface are moist with the must/wine. The maceration of the peels on the wine continues for 15-20 days, then the free run wine is separed from the marc, which is pressed. Follows the malolactic fermentation on fine lees for 20 days, to make the wine softer on the palate.

Ageing

Ageing

The wine ages in small oak barrels, mostly in tonneau (500lt), but also in barrique (225lt), for 24 months. During this period the aromatic profile is defined and the wine acquires softness by polymerization of the polyphenols. Follows the refinement in the bottle for at least 6 months, before being released for consumption.
