Wine-making

Period of harvest:  middle of September
The winemaking process takes place with separation of solid wastes from the must by static clarfication and subsequent fermentation at controlled temperature. The obtained must is left on its fine lees for a few weeks, with periodic re-suspension of the wine sediment, in order to enrich the compounds deriving from the yeast autolysis which renders the wine full-bodied and complex. The second fermentation occurs in autoclaves at low temperature for about 2 months.
