Le Petit

Le Petit


Our rose wine is produced with 100% Syrah grapes from grapes that are harvested exclusively in our vineyards in Farneta - Cortona. The harvest usually takes place around the last week of August in order to have just the right amount of acidity in the grapes and to maintain fresh aromas. Grapes are hand-picked in small 15/20 kg perforated boxes to which we add dry ice in order to keep the temperatures low. Once in the cellar, they are immediately pressed and the skins are discarded.

Within 36 hours of harvesting, the liquid must be racked, which is followed by the fermentation of the juices that takes place without any contact with skins so that our wine takes on its limpid and brilliant pink color. The wine stabilizes at slow temperatures after which it is clarified and filtered before bottling, which is usually done in the March that follows the harvest.
