Wine description

The red wine Achelo is honored by the Cortona DOC Syrah certification and it is produced in the La Braccesca winery with 100% Syrah grapes. The Syrah grapes are picked at the second half of September. After the destemming and the pressing of the berries it starts the maceration firstly at 10°C to extract the typical aromas of the vine and then at 28°C to keep the aroma and the integrity of the grape. After about 10 days, the 70% of the wine is put in wood where it takes place the malolactic fermentation and where it starts its maturation process. The remaining part goes in to the steel. The bottling takes place in winter to guarantee the youth and freshness of the wine.
