Harvest and Production
Harvesting is carefully done by hand, selecting the best plots according to soil type,exposure to sunlight, and location. Only the best vineyards at their optimal point of polyphenolic maturation are used. This wine has a highly distinctive character.
After the harvest, our must is macerated for 35 days to extract the grape’s full potential and to obtain the powerful, elegant wines that characterise PINNA FIDELIS.
The wine was placed in barrels made of French and American oak from the finest coopers, without being clarified or filtered, where it aged for 14 months. We took great care of the wine while it was in the barrels, regularly conducting Batonage, topping it and racking it in the spring and autumn.
Finally, the wine was fined with egg white prior to being bottled.
