classification
IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) Valli di Porto Pino.
place of origin
Carignano and sangiovese grapes from medium-aged vineyards in coastal areas, erect shrub technique.

Red soils and sandy soils poor in organic matter, with excellent drainage, typical of our coastal areas.
grape varieties
Vitigni tipici del territorio 85%, Sangiovese 15%.
climate
Hot and dry summers, mild winters.
harvesting
In regular years, the harvesting of carignano grapes starts in the second half of September and ends in the first half of October.
vinication and development
The well-ripened, healthy grapes are fermented and macerated for about ten days, in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 26-28 °C. This is followed by drawing off, early malolactic fermentation and subsequent evolution in cement vats in order to preserve the wine’s full flavour, taste and bouquet.
