Vineyards: in Gussago, Franciacorta, DOCG limited area. Special attention is given to the optimization of the landscape, the respect of the territory and the environment. The grapes come from hillside vineyards with clay and limestone loam and loose and gravelly moraine soils, with high-density Guyot training.Vinification and ageing: the Pinot Nero grapes are harvested by hand and rest in 18 kg crates to keep the bunches in perfect condition during transport to the winery. Immediately after harvesting, the destemmed grapes are put into a special press for maceration. This is followed by a soft and gradual crushing to extract the best part of the juice: the first-pressing must, delicate in color and with light pink nuances. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with constant control of the fermentation temperatures. The spring following the harvest, the wine is bottled (tirage) and aged on lees for at least 25 months. After degorgement, the bottles rest in the winery for a further 5 months. The base made up exclusively of Pinot Nero gives this Franciacorta particular body and vigour.
