||Altitude: 600 m. a.s.l. The climatic trend of the Bucholz di Salorno area is characterized by strong temperature variations, with hot days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and cold nights with very cool winds coming down from the mountains.
|Composition of the land
||The calcareous terrain is characterized by the presence of clay and gravel.
||The grapes are harvested by hand into small crates.
||Upon arrival in the cellar, the stalks are removed, taking the utmost care to eliminate them gently, respecting both the grapes and the stalks. The grapes then ferment in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The must is pumped over regularly to ensure contact with the skins and extract all their aromatic substances and colour.
||After medium-length maceration, part of the wine remains in steel and part is transferred to French oak barrels of different sizes and age. The wines are blended approximately 12 months later. Bottling takes place after about 4 months and the wine is ready to be released for sale after at least another four months in the bottle.
||Ideal with complex dishes featuring meat or game, and with mature cheeses.
