Organic wine preparation
The grapes for this Montepulciano d'Abruzzo come from young vines from a vineyard near Nociano. They are read by hand on the 1st and 2nd week of October, depending on their degree of ripeness, which is determined on the basis of the sugar content, the acidity, the pH and the phenol content. The berries are then separated from the panicles and macerated at 15° C for two days. Then fermented at 25 to 27° C for 5 to 8 days, with the grape skins being repeatedly stirred with the must. Only then is the must pressed lightly with the grape skins and separated from the grape skins. The remaining alcoholic and lactic acid fermentation, as well as the maturation of the young wine is done in stainless steel tanks, then filtered and bottled.
