> On the right bank of the Po river in the south of Lombardy region, extends a land of gently sloping hills characterized by extremely
favourable climatic and geomorphological conditions for growing grapes.
> It has a temperate climate with high temperature ranges, dry in the winter and breezy in the summer.
> The soil is sedimentary with marl made up of equal parts of limestone and clay.
> The grapes are hand-picked allowing to:
> prevent the presence of material that could negatively influence the wine’s sensory profile (pieces of leaves, branches, pieces of bark);
> reduce the crushing and breaking of the grapes with the leaking of must (mashing) and its subsequent premature oxidation, which
would result in a decrease of the phenolic potential;
> decrease the percentage of grapes or bunches that are diseased or not perfectly mature.
> The white-wine vinification occurs, immediately separating the skins from the must using soft pressing.
> The base wine then undergoes a second fermentation according to the Long Charmat method in cuve close at 14 °C:
> specific yeasts for this vinification method are added;
> the temperature is set to 14-15 °C to avoid the risk of delayed or
blocked fermentation, a decrease in the fullness and delicacy of the aromas, and an alteration in color;
> at the end of the fermentation process, the wine is left for a long time (4-5 months) to age on the lees.
> The entire process lasts at least 3 months. During this time, daily swirling of the mass is performed to bring the sediments back into
fermentation. This operation promotes contact between the wine and the lees, enriches its structure and increase the complexity of its sensory profile.
> Then the wine is stabilized at -5 °C and finally filtered and bottled.
