Vinification and Aging
After the manual harvest , the grapes are taken to the cellar , where a cold pre-fermentation maceration is carried out for four days (suitable for the extraction of aromas). After this first phase, the actual fermentation begins. The wine obtained is aged for a few months exclusively in steel , before being bottled without any filtration .
We are located in Alto Monferrato , in Castel Boglione . Here Cascina Garitina owns about 26 hectares of vineyards located at an altitude ranging from 240 to 320 meters above sea level. One of the strengths of the area is the Mediterranean climate , mild even in winter.
