IN VIGNA: In the last 30 years the leaf surface has been considerably increased with respect to the quantity of bunches, so as to always obtain the highest quality grapes.
DIRECTIONS: The selection of the grapes takes place mainly in the vineyard during the whole phase of setting, ripening and maturation. 3 thinning are done manually in order to reduce the production per ha and make the bunches all the same, with a homogeneous maturation.
HARVEST: Harvesting is done manually using small crates so as not to compress and do not have cracks in grapes already in the vineyard.
VINIFICATION: The alcoholic fermentation takes place in hatched steel tanks with control of fermentation temperatures and decanting; it runs out in about 15/20 days.
It does not pass in wood but it is made a light refinement in steel tanks, with subsequent natural decantation.
All the operations carried out after the alcoholic fermentation, up to the bottling included, are made by protecting the wine from contact with oxygen using Nitrogen. In this way there is a greater preservation of the aromas of wine and coloring substances and a considerable reduction in the use of sulphites.
