Pignolo DOC COLLAVINI
The vinification of 100% Pignolo grapes. The origin of the vines is that of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. The harvest takes place as usual by hand, in the month of October. The vinification provides that the grapes, harvested in trays, are stored in fruity and concentrated at low temperature for about 20 days. It follows destemming and fermentation on the skins for about three weeks, however at controlled temperature. From the following spring Pignolo begins the aging in barrique and continues for at least 5 years. The aging is completed in the bottle for a period of not less than 2 years.
