Greco di Tufo "Giallo d'Arles" DOCG QUINTODECIMO
From the vinification in purity of the refined and wisely selected grapes of 100% pure Greco di Tufo vine, rigorously reared within the company limits of the Quintodecimo winery. The origin of these vines lies in the Tufo area, where the Giallo d'Arles vineyard stands, in the Santa Lucia district. Harvest takes place by hand during the second decade of October with an optimal degree of ripeness of the grapes. After a long pressing of the whole bunches, vinification involves the separation of the draining must, strictly protected from oxygen, from that of the press and clarified by natural sedimentation. The fermentation takes place for 70% in stainless steel vats and for 30% in new oak barrels. This is followed by a period of eight months of elevage on fine lees regularly resuspended in the wine.
