The Chardonnay and Sauvignon vineyards planted in the coolest terrain of Cascina S. Pietro are grown with the utmost attention during every vegetative growth stage. Normally, the grapes are ripe and ready for vintage in late August. They are carefully selected and placed in crates.
Vinification and ageing:
The Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes are immediately crushed, refrigerated, and placed in a stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature, where they undergo cold soak maceration to extract the most delicate aromas. After that, the grapes are soft pressed to extract the juice. The must is clarified by removing solids by decanting before undergoing alcoholic fermentation using selected yeast strains.
The modern stainless steel tanks allow for continuous temperature control during fermentation. This enhances the typical fragrance and flavour of Chardonnay and Sauvignon vine varieties.
The wine ages in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature for a few months undergoing batonnage to release the substances of the fermentation yeast.
During the first spring after the vintage, the wine is bottled and left to rest in an underground cellar, which provides the best natural conditions for the final ageing process.
