Vinification
The grapes are picked manually and after de-stemming and soft pressing, are fermented using indigenous yeast in steel vats filled to no more than two-thirds of their capacity. The fermentation process lasts about a week at controlled temperatures from 28 to 30 degrees. A short manual re-passing of the must and pomace are completed in the initial phase.
Aging
The wine matures for several months in vitrified cement vats where malolactic fermentation occurs. Before bottling the wine is lightly filtered and shipped the summer after harvest.

Optimal maturity
Our Merlot Cortona with a fruity and floral freshness .Due to the vintage’s particular fragrance, we recommend drinking it within the first 4 to 5 years of its life.
