PINOT NOIR RISERVA
The perfect southern position of the vineyard on porphyry soil flanked by dolomitic carbonate minerals, the ideal solar radiation as well as the daily wind “Ora” from the south guarantee the optimal ripening conditions of the berries. These factors ensure the creation of wines year after year, combining elegance and harmony.
PINOT NOIR RISERVA
The stems are immediately removed and the grapes are fermented at a constant temperature of 26 – 28 °C (79 – 82 °F) for about 7 days. The must is kept in contact with the skins through circulation pumping and gentle pressure from below.
We thus achieve ideal results with the coloring from the skins and emphasize the fruitiness of the wine. After two gentle rackings, this Pinot Noir Riserva is aged over 12 months in casks of French oak (barriques) and another 6 months in stainless steel tanks. After blending, the wine is bottled and then aged an additional 6 months in the bottle before it goes on sale.
