Vinification and Aging

Careful selection of the grapes which are subjected to a soft pressing , followed by alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks for 25 days and maceration on the skins for 15-20 days. Aging for 24 months in barriques , after 12 months the assembly takes place and finally another 12 in the same barriques.


From the three sub-zones of the Masseto vineyard (Centrale, Junior and Alto), at an altitude of 120 metres, with a spurred cordon system, the climate of this area is mild and tempered by sea breezes. This Cru is distinguished by the influence that the sea determines at all times: while the light reflected from the aquatic surface rests on the vineyard, the breeze that blows from the sea refreshes the hot summer days and makes the bunches drier in the winter months.


The sea also owes a particular characteristic of the soil , in which the roots of the Merlot vines sink: the blue clay ; coming from ancient sea beds , brought to the surface by tectonic movements, where it is still possible to find traces of its past with the presence of minerals and fossils .
