  • Wine Making

    This wine is produced following two different techniques. One part of the grapes is picked later than usual (late harvest), goes through a cold soaking and the alcoholic fermentation.
    The second part, instead, is harvested in small boxes and left to dry in a ventilated room (appassimento method) until a certain level of sugar is reached. After fermentation the two parts will be blended in together and the final cuvee will age in stainless steel tanks for a couple of months (before bottling).
