|POSITION AND VINEYARDS||
Marly hilly soil: vineyards situeted on East and South facing hillsides. Vines trained with modified double arched cane system, 4000 vines per hectare.
By hand, towards the end of September; 60-65 quintals per hectare.
The bunches, in pefect condition, are left on straw mats under a Northeast facing roof, from which direction the Bora wind, dry and cold, blows from October to December. The grapes dry naturally and reduce the yield to 18 litre per quintal. Before Christmas the grapes are pressed and a dense must is obtained and left to ferment in French oak barriques, half new and half used. Fermentation and its subsequent arrest after about one month to preserve the natural sugar residues are achieved through a system involving heating and cooling of the barriques. This means that the must/wine is not decanted.
12.5 – 13% (sugar residues 170 – 190g/l)
7.5 – 8.5 g/l
