Analytical Data

Alcohol:  n/a
Residual sugar:  2,7 g/lt
Titratable acidity:  5,4 g/lt
pH:  3.53

Grapes are hand-picked and selected on a sorting table prior to crush. For each variety the must is cold soaked at 11-12°C in a reductive environment for 2-5 days depending on the quality of the grapes. Fermentation takes place at 20-22°C, followed by malolactic fermentation in tank. During the first five months of the year, the lees are stirred twice a week (batonnage), in order to achieve a fuller body. After the final blend the wine is bottled, usually in April after the harvest. The winemaker’s main objective is to achieve maximum fruit extraction, while preserving a good level of acidity.
