Vinification: Work begins in the vineyard, where the best bunches of Erbaluce grapes are selected, the healthiest ones, with the thinnest berries, well-coloured by the sun. The grapes are dried naturally, according to an ancient local tradition, which involves hanging the bunches on special supports in ventilated rooms, hampering attack by mould and harmful bacteria, without however preventing noble rot from developing In January, we carefully check and select the bunches of grapes, which are delicately pressed in a small wooden press, the cold must settles and then fermentation begins.
