DOCG

MONTERSINO

Elegance, complexity and balance

Gentian, rhubarb and liquorice characterize the bouquet of this wine thanks to the particular composition of the soil, the excellent exposure and the high planting density of this vineyard.

HARVEST

falls in the first days of October with manual sorting. The excellent exposure, the high planting density of 5000 plants/ha and the particular composition of the soil guarantee optimal maturation of the small, very valuable bunches obtained thanks to the laborious summer leafing and thinning operations.

Alcoholic fermentation at 24° C for 20 days with frequent punching down. Subsequent splinting of the cap for a further maceration of a month when the softer and more defined notes appear.
