Tenuta Polvaro Estate Winery uses Mythos tanks, an exclusive set of state-of-the-art fermentation equipment. Only a handful wineries around the world have adopted this innovative machinery that elevates the vinification process to a higher level of quality.
Il Metodo Divino, Italian for “The Divine Method,” of Mythos has several capabilities that almost all other fermentation technology lacks; complete control of temperature and pressure, macro/micro-oxygenation of must, and optimal saturation of both red and white grape skins.
Unlike other fermentation equipment, the Mythos tanks are sealed airtight, ensuring an optimal level of control. In addition, Mythos is the first ecological fermenter; it uses only the natural CO2 created in fermentation in combination with a small amount of external air to obtain the maximum quality from the vinified grapes.
This Mythos technology allows us to carry out this process for a longer amount of time to completely extract the aromas and flavors from both the red and white skins that would otherwise be lost.
