The grapes are harvested by hand in September and then pressed gently. This is followed by static decantation of the must. Primary fermentation takes place at 18°C in steel tanks, with specially selected yeast for organic wine production. The new wine is left on the “fine lees” for a month, then it is filtered and racked to pressurized vats, where bubbles form. Secondary fermentation takes place at 18°C and select yeast is used once again. The process lasts approximately 15 to 20 days and it is followed by 5 to 10 days of ageing on the lees. The wine is then bottled and left to age in the bottle for a few weeks.
Perlage: very fine and continuous.
