Valicaia I.G.T. Toscana

DESCRIPTION

This wine is the result of a mass selection of our oldest and better exposed vineyards. The collection is carried out manually with sorting of the ripest bunches. In the vineyard the production is controlled by thinning.
Every vine bears only one cluster. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately for each variety to allow an optimal ripening gradient, respecting the tradition and the vine.
The fermentation lasts more than 21 days, at the end of which the blend is made, which is left to rest in small oak barrels where there is malolactic, maturation and the refinement. After 24 months the assembly is done in tank and left to rest for 1 month before bottling. After bottling, the wine is aged for at least 7-9 months before being placed on the market.
