The grapes are selected from the 46 year old vineyards in Rocche of Castiglione that are cultivated with 4,600 plants per hectare with yields of 22 hl/ha (1.1 ton/acre). After harvest and gentle pressing, alcoholic fermentation takes place over 4 weeks in stainless steel tanks at 30-32° C (86-90° F), with frequent pumping of the wine over grape skins for flavor and color extraction. This wine is always pleasant and long-lived. It’s one of Vietti’s most traditional products.
After 4 weeks of malolactic fermentation in barriques, the wine is aged in Slovenian oak casks for 31 months. Bottled unfiltered on the 11th of July 2012.
