VINIFICATIONThe Moscato grapes have to be harvested within the first decade of September.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed, crushed and chilled (temperature of 10-13 °C).
Then, the grapes have to be put in the pneumatic press to divide the skins from the must (soft crush). The must is then left to rest a couple of days in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks (13°C) to separate the turbidity.
The clear must is then filtered and stored in stainless steel tanks. Temperature 0°C.
Before the bottling the must has to be put in sealed tanks and selected yeasts are added. Now, carrying out the Martinotti-Charmatt method, the secondary fermentation begins.
Eventually, the isobaric bottling is carried out. Here pressure should not exceed 1.7 bar.
