Rossorosso, our red wine is produced from three vineyards lying on different elevations. Our purpose is to achieve the same grapes but with completely different organoleptic qualities in order to have a blend of high organoleptic profile. Our grapes are harvested by hand once they are slightly overripe, thus a very small quantity of grapes is first selected and then placed on reed mats in the drying area before vinification. Their fermentation occurs at a constant temperature of 25°C with maceration of the must on the grape skins for 10 days. This wine is aged in 10- and 25-hectoliter oak barrels for a time ranging from 10 to 12 months altogether, followed by a further ageing in bottle enabling the wine to achieve high-quality and be ready for release.
