CHARDONNAY

Winemaking: PRODUCTION ZONE

The Chardonnay grapes come from the vineyards on the Pressano hill and from Prabi in the Laghi Valley. The soils are of sedimentary (Werfen) and alluvial origins, respectively. The vines are trained on the pergola and Guyot systems, with density between 3,500 and 7,000 plants per hectare. The average age of the vines is 20 years.


VINIFICATION

The hand-picked grapes are crushed and pressed in complete absence of oxygen and without the addition of sulfur dioxide. The resulting must is fermented in stainless steel vats and in large oak barrels. The wine is kept in contact with its own yeasts for approximately 6 months, and is bottled in May.
