Montepulciano D’Abruzzo

We use 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 dioxine is used in minimal doses. In the first two days the fermenting graoes are racked and returned (the technique of delestage) twice. During this process some of the seeds are removed to reduce bitter and grassy notes. Subsequently the fermenting mass is 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 maximum of 12 atm. The resulting free-run must it then stored in stainless steel or concrete tanks to await further management. Malolactic fermentation is controlled but not induced.
