Description

Vinification takes place in caratelli, the typical small Tuscan barrels holding between 100 and 200 liters (22 and 44 gallons), and it is triggered by the inoculation of the so-called “madre” (“mother”) – colonies of different types of yeast deriving from previous vinifications – into the must from grapes that have been partially dried on racks. Maturation continues for 8 years in the small chestnut–wood barrels, in which the fermentation lasts a very long time but is intermittent, starting and stopping depending on the natural variations of temperature and pressure.
