WINEMAKING NOTES – How is it made?
The harvest begins in the last week of October 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. Consequently, the selection happens to guarantee that only completely ripe berries go to the wooden mats to the drying process. Drying process lasts approximately from 100 to 120 days. Then, after soft pressing, maceration lasts approximately from 40 to 60 days while the fermentation takes place at the same time in stainless steel tanks. After the wine goes directly in different tanks, where Moronalto matures for 12 months.
Consequently ageing, the wine remains six months more in the bottle before the release.
HARVEST: from October 20th to 30th
