How it was born
After the manual harvesting of the grapes and their soft pressing, the must remains in contact with the skins for a few hours and then begins fermentation, which is carried out in steel containers at a controlled temperature of around 14-16 °C. Once fermentation is complete, the wine remains on the yeasts for around 12 months. Afterwards, the wine is decanted by 2/3 of the volume into a steel tank, where it spends approximately 12 months in contact with the noble yeasts and where battonage is performed periodically. The remaining part (1/3 of the collected volume) is aged – in contact with the yeasts for 1 year – in 10 hl French barrels in which the battonage is carried out.
