Manual

Vinification and Aging

The grapes are carefully arranged next to each in
small boxes where there are left to raisin in a special,
ventilatd room (called a “fruttaio”). After approximately
100 days once an adequate level of raisining has been
obtained, the grapes are selected once again and crushed. Vinification starts with fermentation, followed by maceration for a total of 21 days with punching-down and pumping- over until the sugar content is partially exhausted.

Aging

After racking, the wine is transferred into French vats. This is following by aging for 28-30 months in total and bottling. Bottles are stacked for at least 18-20 months
in a horizontal position before being put on the market.

Serving temperature

16°-18°C and expose to air in a suitable glass to allow its aroma to evolve for a few minutes.
