Denominazione di Orgine Controllata e garantita
Produced with Arneis grapes from the zone of Castellinaldo and Vezza d'Alba.
The vines, trained with the guyot method, are about 12-15 years old and yield
approximately 90-100 quintals per hectare. The grapes are generally harvested in late September.
The grapes are collected in baskets and immediately taken to the cellar.
Only free-run juice,
the finest part of the must, is used, stored in low-temperature steel vats for 24 hours to clarify.
Part of the grapes is soft pressed. The rest of the grapes are cryo-fermented in special vats. After
soft pressing, the must is stored in low-temperature steel vats. The two musts are then blended.
As soon as the must begins to ferment, thanks to the addition of selected yeasts, it is transferred
to temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to promote fermentation.
After alcoholic fermentation,
Arneis is conserved and aged in stainless steel vats for 3-4 months. Before bottling, the wine is
clarified, filtered, and stabilised only if absolutely necessary. The bottled wine is racked in
temperature-controlled rooms until delivery.
