Malvasia "Pètris" DOC Venica
100% Malvasia variety is the base for this wine of Venica&Venica. The wine making process considers that the maceration of the pressed grapes lasts for 18 max 24 hours at a controlled temperature that swings between 11/12°C. It is managed in specific containers protected by oxygen through the recycling of its fermentation CO2, to reduce the quantity of antioxidants. The 70% of the must then ferments and ages on its yeasts for 5 months in big barrels (20 HL), the other 30% in steel.
