Taurasi RISERVA "Vigna Grande Cerzito" DOCG QUINTODECIMO
From the 100% vinification of Aglianico grapes. This label is the most representative one of the Quintodecimo winery. The origin is that of the GRANDE CERZITO vineyard in Mirabella Eclano. Harvest takes place during the second - third decade of October at most with slightly overripe grapes. Vinification started immediately after a careful pre - and post - destemming selection of the crushed grapes, fermenting for 20-25 days at a temperature of 28-30 ° C. Subsequently, an élevage of 18-24 months in new oak barrels is carried out.
