GRAPES

ORIGIN
Strevi hills, Pineto Vineyard.

VINIFICATION
Brachetto grapes are selected and dried following an ancient technique whereby the warmth of the sun and the blowing of the wind naturally concentrate the fruit’s sugars.
After two months of drying on straw mats the grapes are softly pressed, selected skins are left to ferment with the must at controlled temperatures for about 1 month. Then the wine is aged in old barrels for two years.

TASTING NOTES
