VINIFICATIONThe Arneis grapes have to be harvested during the second ten days 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 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, which lasts about ten days. Afterwards, the wine is poured and then left in contact with its lees. Eventually, in the Spring following the harvest, the Roero Arneis DOCG Capural is then bottled and ready to be marketed.
