Characteristics and Production Technologies

The Ansonica grapes are characterized as late ripening, therefore the harvest takes place during the first days of October. This late picking allows the sugar and flavour content of the fruit to reach the maximum concentration. In addition, to obtain an excellent production it is necessary to reduce the number of bunches per plant as well as the size of each bunch. This selection is normally accomplished several days before the grapes are picked. After the harvest, grapes are transported to the wine factory. Firstly, they are cooled down to preserve the excellent qualities of the fruit. Next, the grapes ferment at a controlled temperature. The wine is subsequently kept on the noble lees for some months with daily batonnage. Then, it is refined in oak barrels. Finally, the wine is filtered and bottled.
