Winemaking process:
The grapes to produce Amarone Classico “Vigneto Alto” are selected in the middle of September. They’re brought in the Fruttaio and left in
wooden plateaux where they are left to dry naturally for 4 months.
In January the grapes are carefully selected and pressed in truncated cone oak vats where, after about 15 days, fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. In the following 60 days several pumping-overs and delestage for the skins submersion are performed. The wine is then racked off and moved in a steel tank where its gross lees is decanted off. After about 20 days it is racked off again and moved to wooden barrels where fermentation and aging are completed.
