Winemaking
 

After years of experience, we have embraced the latest technologies in the field of oenology, and we rely on the expertise of two professional oenologists: Marco Garattoni and Francesco Tettamanti.

 

The winemaking process is crucial, and attention is given to the smallest detail with great passion.

 

The first step of this ritual is harvesting – exclusively by hand, in small crates of 10/15 kg each.

 

With the exception of Vindala – which is harvested and left to dry naturally in the grape drying room for two weeks, in order to concentrate its spicy, balsamic and candied aromas even more – in the early production stages of Cana, Eco della natura, Vespro and Sette punto cinque, we try to extract a clear must and avoid oxidation; this is a delicate moment indeed, and oxygen could cause the loss of varietal aromas.

 

After fermentation at a controlled temperature in steel tanks, our wines spend a few months maturing on lees – this provides body and structure, striking a balance with acidity and minerality.

 

Ageing
 

Our wines are matured in both stainless steel tanks and oak barrels; then, they are bottled, and spend a few more months ageing in bottle too.

In our red wines, we look for extraction, complexity and balance.

 

Conversely, as far as other wines are concerned – e.g. Irti Colli – we try not to interfere with wood and to preserve those fruity notes that are typical of Merlot, by maturing it in steel tanks.


We believe that a great wine is a well-balanced wine. We therefore perform post-fermentation maceration on skins, depending on the wine and its potential.

The fascinating thing about winemaking is that it is very personal, and it changes depending on the wine – to us, craftsmanship is looking for the best way to interpret each cru.

Maturation

 

After must has turned into wine, some of our excellent red wines spend a long (minimum 24 months) maturation period in new and/or used French oak barrels – in this case, oxygen is our ally in slowly enhancing and making our wine evolve.

 

For instance, Tributo, Marselan, Vindala, amiis, TI4 and Vint are wines whose basic features and potential allow us to achieve high quality standards.
