Harvest and Winemaking
The grapes used for this traditional vinsanto come from vineyards that are over 50 years old, with a density of 3000 plants per hectare.After the harvest, the grapes are placed in the historical Vinsantaia, where the bunches are hung from the rafters and allowed to dry. The Vinsantaia was made in the late 1800’s. Once the grapes achieve the level of sugar desired, they are then pressed and the must is placed in small barrels, known as ‘caratelli’, between 50-100L. These small barrels are then sealed and kept close for over 5 years, during with the slow fermentation and oxygenation can take place. It’s during this period that the vital characteristics of this one of a kind, and special, wine are made.
Beautiful amber color is met with strong aromas and flavors of almonds, honey, and dried fruits.
