Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Riserva

We used stainless steel and concrete tanks for the vinification process. Maceration on the skins generally lasts for around 15 days at a controlled temperature no higher than 29°C. Sulphur dioxide is used in minimal doses. In the first two days the fermenting grapes are racked and returned (the technique of delestage) twice. Durung this process some of the seeds are removed to reduce bitter and grassy notes. Subsequently the fermenting mass in pumped over every 3-4 days for approximately 10 minutes at a time. As the wine is drawn off it undergoes a soft pressing at a minum of 12 atm. The resulting free-run must is then stord in a stainless steel or concrete tanks to await further management. Malolactic fermentation is controlled but not induced. Finally the wine undergoes 9 month maturation in 35hl Slavonion oak butts.
