Contessa Maggi

Vinification

The whole bunches, picked entirely by hand, were immediately given a soft pressing. The must obtained by this operation went directly into temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for the initial fermentation. In the spring of the following year, the wine underwent a second fermentation, this time in bottle, remaining in contact with its fine lees for an extended period of time.
