Origini Rosso Classico Sannio Riserva 2017 DOC 13.5% (Red)
Farming of the grapes: This wine is obtained from a combination of Sangiovese and Aglianico grapes, grown in limestone-clay soils at an altitude of 200-350 m.a.s.l. Located on the slopes of the Regional Park of Taburno-Camposauro. An espalier farming system is employed giving a yield of 100 hectares from wines with the average age between 10 and 25 years. The harvest takes place during the month of October.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and conferred to the winery. There follows the de-stemming and soft pressing. The vinification is carried out by maceration with the skins, which are continuously re-submerged into the must. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The product is then aged in large oak casks for at least 18 months, with a short period in barriques. The ageing process then continues in the bottle.
