Description

WINE MAKING PROCESS
The grapes, strictly selected in the vineyard, are vinified with a light maceration of the skins. After soft pressing, the must is fermented at a temperature of 15° C, until it reach 5% of residual sugar. Once this value has been reached, it is placed in 225 liter barrels of acacia wood and, once fermentation is complete, it remains in contact with the lees for 8/12 months with frequent battonage. Racked into steel tanks, after 40/60 days it is bottled with filtration at 1 micron.
