Vinification takes place with soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature. The short ageing in oak barrels gives to the wine delicate scents and tertiary aromas, leaving also some space to the freshness and vivacity typical of these grapes. The vineyard of Le Colonne is at an altitude of 300 meters and it’s cultivated with a density of 4000 plants per hectare. Harvesting takes place strictly by hand during the firt weeks of September. The first stage of the vinification happen in steel tanks for 48 hours at controlled temperature, and it’s named “clarification or decantation”. After that take place the alcoholic fermentation and the subsequent ageing happen in oak barrels for almost 4 months. We also leave the wine age for 2 months in bottle.
