Winemaking Process

The grapes are dried on reed mats placed in a well ventilated, dry room.
The juice is put in chestnut kegs (50 lt small sealed barrels) containing the “mother” (old wine obtained from the previous vintages of Vin Santo), where it ferments spontaneously.
The must ages inside the casks for 4 years during which undergoes a long and slow oxidation giving the wine its uniqueness. Final aging in bottle for 6 months.
