Winemaking: The grapes are harvested when fully mature and placed on racks to dry up (to reach the desired concentration of sugars around 40%). These selected grapes are then crushed and subjected to a subsequent pressing in order to obtain all of the must, which is then placed in small barrels (caratelli) of approximately 100 lt.
These barrels are made of different types of wood such as oak, cherry, chestnut and mulberry, this variety of wood gives the vinsanto its unique taste.
A slow fermentation lasting up to 5 years allows this wine to complete its development and draws out all of its unique characteristics.
