The Winery is proud to launch the Vigne Vecchie 2008, the vintage of the 50° Anniversary! Our firm has got very old Barbera-variety vineyards, which date back to the period prior to the Second World War. These vineyards have a special planting system, with very close plants and an extraordinary sun exposure.
Grapes coming from "Vigne Vecchie" are the richest in sugar-content and they keep a high quality standard even in bad vintages. Grapes are chosen on the basis of their ripening. They are harvested and kept in boxes of 20 kilos each. These selected grapes are pressed under the supervision of our firm''s managers. Our vine-growers must empty the boxes one at a time in a small wine-press. The fermentation is done through vertical vinification-machines at controlled temperature.
The drawing process starts after 10 days of fermentation. The 50° Anniversary is offered without oak ageing, just nature, refined in steel vats.
