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.
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.
