VINIFICATION

Off skins, once the drying process is over, the grapes are positioned in a manual wine-press and gently squeezed. The residue (must) is slowly fermented in small 228 liter French oak barrels for about a year.

HARVEST PERIOD/METHOD

Mid-September, handpicking and careful selection of the most sun-drenched grape bunches. They are then dried naturally using the traditional “picai-method”, where they are hung (in dialect “picà”, hence the name of the drying process) with ties in a loft for at least 4 months.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Excellent served by itself, or it is a perfect match with traditional oven-baked pastries (the sweeter, drier kind), cookies like “cantucci”, pâté de foie gras, and strong tasting cheeses like blue cheeses.
