Picolit DOCG

Vinification: grapes are left to partially dry on the vines or, if the weather is not permitting, on specially made drying racks. The partially-dried grapes undergo a traditional vinification with crushing and maceration of the skins on the must for a period of 48-60 hours so as to extract colour and aromatic substances. The skins then undergo a soft pressing and the resulting product is blended with the first-pressing must that has been left to ferment in a French oak barrique. Refinement in wood lasts for 8-10 months, at the end of which bottling takes place.
