Winemaking: PRODUCTION ZONE
The production vineyard in the region of Prabi is characterized
by alluvial soils, formed over the centuries by the Sarca River,
which runs alongside it. The Sarca River originates in the
Adamello Brenta Natural Park, a land endowed with great
geological complexity, from volcanic rock to sedimentary
dolomite rock, to the schists of the Rendena Valley. The area?s
climate is strongly influenced by the breezes coming off Lake
Prabi is one of the youngest vineyards, with an average age of
11 years. The vines are trained on the Guyot system, with a
density of 7,000 plants per hectare.
The hand-picked grapes are partly pressed after a brief cold
maceration and then partly vinified until the cap forms,
harnessing the energy of the yeast present on the grapes.
The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, followed
by an aging period of around eight months on the lees before
