According to the ancient Tuscan traditions, the Riserva is a selection of the best grapes, which are also worked more accurately than the other grapes. The more qualitative fruits are selected and thinned. Then, only the best bunches are picked. After the elimination of all the impurities, the grapes are crushed and then they are cooled down. Next, the must ferments in steel tanks. Fermentation takes place slowly because of the low temperature and the high concentration of substances in the skins. After a short maceration, masses are transferred in concrete tanks where malolactic fermentation occurs. Successively, wine is refined for two years in wooden barrels made with French oak. Finally, the final products are assembled.
