Descrizione vino

Pinodisè is a fortified wine from the Contadi Castaldi winery. Winery that has selected the most famous vineyards and the richest vine-growers of expertise and traditional experience from this magnificent area of Franciacorta. This Passito is obtained from an assembly between the must of Chardonnay grapes harvested at full maturity and a blend of important aged brandies aged at least 12 years. The must ferments in steel at a controlled temperature, around 0 degrees, thus allowing a natural clarification, avoiding interventions that distort the wine. After fermentation, brandy is added, and the resulting mixture is aged in oak barrels for 36 months. During refining the brandy releases softness, warmth and structure to the must.
