VINIFICATIONThe Nebbiolo is a late ripening grape varietal. It has to be harvested between the end of September and the first decade of October.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed and crushed. Then, they are put in a horizontal thermo-conditioned vinificator with rotating blades, where the alcoholic fermentation takes place. Alcoholic fermentation lasts at least one week at a temperature of 28-32°C
After racking and pouring, the wine remains in contact with its lees (temperature of 20-22 °C) for at least two months while it completes the malo-lactic fermentation.
Now the wine is ready to start the ageing in oak barrels. Both new and once-used barriques (225 L) are used. It lasts 24 months.
Eventually, after 2 years from the harvest, the Barbaresco DOCG Sorì Montaribaldi is bottled and, after at least 6 months of storage in our cellar, it is ready to be marketed.
