VINIFICATIONThe rosé wine Sigiuja is produced carrying out the off skin vinification of Nebbiolo grapes.
The Nebbiolo grapes have to be harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October.
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 turbidity.
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, before the summer, the Langhe Rosato DOC Sigiuja is bottled and ready to be marketed.
