VINIFICATIONThe Chardonnay and Sauvignon grapes are harvested and vinificated separately.
They have to be harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed, crushed and chilled (temperature of 10-13 °C).
Then, they are put in the pneumatic press to divide the skins from the must (soft crush). The must is then left to rest for a few days in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks (13°C) to separate the turbidness.
The clear must goes through the alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 15-18°C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about ten days.
Once it finishes, the wine is poured and then left in contact with its lees.
Eventually in May, 7 months after the harvest, the wines are blended together. The Langhe Chardonnay DOC Sigiuja is then bottled and ready to be marketed.
