Wine making: Collection of grapes, completely handmade, generally starts around 15th October for Sangiovese. The harvest is put in small boxes containing about 15 Kg of grapes each. Grapes arrive at the cellar on the terrace above the wine making zone; it is introduced in the stemmer-crasher machine, stemmed then pressed, and by the only gravity force it gets into half-conical vats, by 20 hl, situated in the cellar itself. Inside these barrels fermentation starts at controlled temperature of grapes (not higher than 28 – 30C), in touch with peels for about 25-28 days.
