Vinification: Biancolella is the most significant autochthonous vine of the Island of Ischia. Harvested at the right degree of ripeness, the grapes are de-stemmed and pressed softly. The must obtained in this way, limpid and intact, is added with a fermentation base, previously prepared with the best selected grapes of the same vine. It is then subjected to a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a strictly controlled temperature (12-14 °C), which lasts for about 20 days. Maturation continues in steel tanks, where also a long series of bâtonnages takes place with reducing frequency, in order to obtain a complex, structured and delicately scented wine that is naturally stable at the same time. For bottling, we will wait for the month of February.
