The Schiava grapes of Vigneti delle Dolomiti Frizzante Schiava Belle Francesco Poli are grown in the vineyard located in the countryside of Santa Massenza, on calcareous marly soil rich in skeleton. The harvest begins in late September and is manual in a box with selection in the vineyard. Vigneti delle Dolomiti Frizzante IGT “Schiava Belle” Francesco Poli vinifies in steel and then referments in the bottle with the addition in the spring of the must of the Vino Santo in fermentation with its own spontaneous yeasts.
NOTES: sparkling wine included in the project Bollicine da Uvee Italiane. The vineyards are cultivated according to biodynamic agriculture, enriched with green manures and biodynamic preparations. We thus obtain stronger plants, with greater root development that allow us to minimize treatments based only on natural substances.
“From the 2009 harvest, the Belle Massenza was born, which I created to enhance the Peverella, an old grape variety that has almost disappeared but historically existed. Following the sparkling process in autoclave, I wanted to introduce the Family Method by refermenting the same wine with the addition of Vino Santo Trentino must “With the 2014 vintage the same vinification I reported on Schiava”. FRANCESCO POLI.
The Francesco Poli Winery is located in Santa Massenza: the southern climate meets the continental one, the Mediterranean plants coexist with the alpine ones. It is in this small town of renowned wine-growing and distillation tradition that the Agricultural Company and the Distillery of Francesco and Alessandro Poli are located. Since 1998 the vineyards have been cultivated in organic farming, and for some years biodynamic farming techniques have been used.
