Foglia Tonda


Foglia Tonda 100%

Production 300 bottles Vines training method Guyot, Planting year 2012 Planting density 5000 vines/ ha. Yeld about 50 q./ha. One of very few 100% Foglia Tonda produced in all Italy, the grapes are harvested manually during the cool night time, carefully selected and transported to the winery in small baskets. The bunches are then gently destemmed and the whole berries undergo a spontaneous fermentation in small wooden fermenters. The grapes are left to macerate on the skins for 24 to 30 days, and then softly pressed with a small bladder press. The wine is then aged for 15 months on its fine lees in barrique and an additional 6 months in the bottle before it is released. We only add a minimal quantity of sulfites to our wine prior to bottling. We do not fine, clarify, filter our wines at any time during production nor do we chemically adjust it.
