All production operations are performed manually, especially the harvesting, which is a very important phase to ensure the quality of the future wine. During the harvest, the grapes are selected according to their quality. First, we harvest Canaiolo Nero, and second, the Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in cement vats with a temperature ranging between 28°C-30°C/82°F-86°F, followed by aging in steel for 6-months and then in the bottle for at least 3-months.
Berger, a beautiful black sheepdog from Bergamo, was gifted to Pietro upon his Istituto Agrario completion in 2014. His simple, calm, and gentle demeanor brought our family so much joy. Nottolo della Marronaia is not only dedicated to our dear Berger but also our beloved Dino and all Bergamasco Sheepdogs
