The significance of this renowned wine, the beauty and the reputation of this land with its terroir and vines have instilled in us deep respect for the century-old wine tradition of Montepulciano. By this criterion, the numerous passages on the grapevines, while harvesting, enable the grapes to be picked by hand just at the time of their optimum phenolic maturation in order to achieve a high-quality product; grapes are then carried from the vineyard to the winery, where they are submitted to a further quality control before pressing. After obtaining the must, it is left to ferment at a controlled temperature of 27°C, enabling tannin and color to be enhanced. Its maceration on grape skins continues for 10 days and the malolactic conversion takes place when the wine has already been put into the barrel. Burberosso, a gentle and noble wine, is first left to age for at least 18 months in 25- and 50- hectoliter oak barrels , followed by a further ageing time in bottle before release, thus featuring the best of its ‘noble’ and ’austere’ character, as the very Nobile di Montepulciano is required to be.
