WINEMAKING NOTES – How is it made?
The harvest begins in the last week of September and farmers pick grapes by hand and put them in wooden bins. Once in the cellar, the selection of the grapes takes place in two periods, first immediately after picking and then after destemming operations, as a result, to guarantee that only completely ripe berries go to the fermentation tanks. Then, after soft pressing, maceration lasts approximately 1 day while the fermentation takes place at the same time in stainless steel tanks. After filtering operations the wine goes directly in different tanks, where, in conclusion, matures for 6 months. In addition of the finishing step, Ribolla Gialla remains 2 months more in the bottle before the release.
HARVEST: from September 20th to 30th
