VINIFICATIONThe Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes are vinificated separately.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed and crushed. Then, they are put in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place.
Dolcetto grapes, the alcoholic fermentation lasts from 4 to 6 days at a temperature of 26-28 °C.
Nebbiolo grapes, the alcoholic fermentation lasts from 6 to 8 days days at a temperature of 27-29 °C.
After racking and pouring, the wines (always separate) remain in contact with their lees (temperature of 20-22 °C) for at least two months while they complete the malo-lactic fermentation.
Then, taking advantage of the wintriness, the wine is left to rest from 3 to 4 months at low temperature in order to facilitate the deposit of the turbidity and the clarification.
Afterwards, the wines (always separately) are moved in oak barrels (2,500 – 3,000 l) to be aged for two to three months.
Then, they are blended together according with their features. On average, the Langhe Rosso DOC Trestelle is made up of 33% of Nebbiolo, 33% of Barbera and 33% of Dolcetto.
Eventually, after bottling and few months of storage in our cellar, the Langhe Rosso DOC Trestelle is ready to be marketed.
