the winemaking

The wine, like the vineyard, must be respected, even in time.

The harvest is always done by hand, with great attention.
The pressing takes place mechanically, allowing a gentle press, which expels the whole stalks and does not crush the seeds.

The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in steel tanks. The maceration with the skins varies according to the vintage, generally around 15/20 days. In this first phase the wine develops fundamental elements: perfume, color, tannins.

Subsequently the wine is moved into large Slavonian (Garbellotto) and Swiss (Suppiger) oak barrels – not toasted – where it ages for about 12 – 15 months.

Bottling follows, always in the waning moon phase.
No filtrations or clarifications are carried out, in order to maintain the structure of the wine perfectly intact.

One last step to rest in the bottle, before being labeled and released to the market. The wine, like the vineyard, must be respected, even in time.
