DOC Grignolino

Made with Grignolino grapes, a typical Piedmont variety traditionally cultivated in Monferrato Astigiano. Presumably, the name Grignolino is derived from “grignola”, a dialect word used to describe grape seeds more numerous in this variety than others.

IN THE VINEYARD

Light cluster thinning in August followed by a manual harvest of the grapes in September.

IN THE CELLAR

Selection and inspection of the grapes occurs on the sorting table followed by a gentle destemming and crushing. Cold maceration of the crushed grapes for 6 – 7 days at 8 – 10 °C (46 – 50 °F) to extract greater colour and more intense varietal scents. The temperature is raised to 20 °C (68 °F) and alcoholic fermentation begins. Maximum fermentation temperature 24 – 25 °C (75 – 77 °F). Drawing off occurs after 1 – 2 days fermentation.

AGEING

Malolactic fermentation and refining in stainless steel tanks takes place until spring.
