Production technique

The hilly area of Castello di Tassarolo’s vineyards is in a class of its own for having all the characteristics needed for making great wine. Right from the winter pruning and later with the careful Biodynamic cultivation of the vines, it enjoys special attention, which is rewarded by the particular quality of the grapes it yields. In their completeness they express everything that is meant by the term Superiore. The late harvest, exclusively by hand, a light cold maceration and a gentle pressing aimed at a maximum yield of must of not more than 60%, allow us to ferment a must with the special qualities which will later come to characterise the wine. The fermentation is conducted at very low temperature. Once, the wine is made, every operation, right up to bottling, is aimed at preserving the quality we seek. It is 100% HANDMADE.
