Campo del Viotto

Wise old vines that know the virtue of Time

Varietal

Merlot 100%

Older vines that are wise and understand the value of Time

In a region of white wines, this is a unique great red wine. Grapes that are left to dry slightly, and the time spent ageing in the barrel enhance the character of our Merlot revealing the complexity of this noble wine.

Vineyard

Exclusively from our “Campo del Viotto” vineyard. 6,000 vines planted per hectare, trained using the Guyot method. Yield of 60 ql/ha.

Harvest

Meticulous hand selection of the ripest bunches.

Vinification

The first whole clusters harvested are dried out for about 20 days, then destemmed and transferred to small oak barrels for fermentation. The whole clusters from the second harvest are immediately destemmed and placed in stainless steel for fermentation. Frequent punch downs of the cap allow for maximum color and tannin extraction.

Aging

Aged in small oak barriques for 2 years and bottle aged for an additional 6 months before release.
