Winemaking: the Barolo RISERVA is produced only in the best vintages and with the best grapes. The winemaking is traditional with fermentation of about 15/20 days at 26°C. De-stemming, soft pressing of the grapes, the must is pumped over on a dèlastage way to improve the extraction of the colour and the varietal aromas. After the malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in Slavonian and French wooden oak barrels with weekly topping up, tastings and analyses to make sure the wine is developing correctly.
