HARVEST

When the grapes reach the correct phenolic ripeness and sugar level they are harvested by hand. We use only small containers, which are transported immediately to the winery to be processed. In general, the Sangiovese grapes are harvested in mid-September and the Montepulciano from mid-October onwards.

FERMENTATION

The grapes are de-stemmed and lightly crushed. This first must is then conveyed to the small sized fermenters, which have a system to circulate the must at a controlled temperature of 20°C. The initial process (maceration) lasts about 20 days after which the wine is racked and aged in steel.


REFINING

After 6 months of aging in stainless steel with continuous turning (riddling), the wine is aged for 6 months in oak barrels.

The wine is then bottled and left to rest for at least 3 months.
