VINEYARDS: for making this wine we use accurately selected Nebbiolo grapes coming from our vineyards located in Castione A. and Sondrio Communes (20%) and Teglio Commune (80%).
All the vineyards are grown according Guyot method, bearing 8-10 buds per cane.
In this way we keep grape yield low and this is essential for producing high quality wines.

VINIFICATION: the grapes were hand-picked early in october using small boxes containing about 4 kg each.
The boxes were transferred into a cellar and allowed to dry up to the end of december when the grapes went through the de-stemmer and crusher.
Vinification took place in stainless steel vat and lasted for 20 days; then the wine was drawed off and allowed to finish alcoholic fermentation.
After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred into a medium-size oack barrel and allowed to mature for about 24 months.
Our SFORZATO has spent 5 more months in bottles before selling.
