At the end of August, harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are sent to the cellar. After a soft press of the grapes, vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature not exceeding 17 °C/63° F.
In the beginning of March, the sparkling wine is made according to the Charmat Method. The Charmat method is a sparkling winemaking process that traps bubbles in wine via carbonation in large steel tanks. This technique is also called metodo Italiano, the Marinotti method, the tank method, or cuve close.
Piuma della Marronaia was created with the aim to combine Tuscan traditions and innovation within the same bottle. This is the core belief that both Pietro and Corrado bring to each bottle of wine as they continue to develop the family business.
