In Gussago, Franciacorta, the DOCG limited area, special attention is given to the optimization of the landscape, the respect of the territory and the environment. The grapes come from foothill vineyards with average fertility. High planting density with the Guyot training system, short pruning and limited quantities of grapes per plant. The grapes are harvested after mid-August and by hand. The grapes are soft-crushed in a modified atmosphere to avoid contact with oxygen. Fermentation is kept at a low temperature as are the subsequent operations.The wine is aged for 12 months partly in barriques and partly in steel tanks. Because the grapes are very ripe, this gives greater structure and aromatic maturity.
This is an ORGANIC certified product
We only use organic farming. In fact, we do not treat our crops with synthetic molecules but only substances of natural origin. We do not use phosphate mineral fertilisers, but only organic compost, if necessary, which provides organic matter for the soil. Furthermore, we do not weed chemically but use mechanical means under the rows, a more expensive practice which is better for the soil. Lastly, we do not use synthetic fungicide but only copper and sulphur, in controlled and ever decreasing doses.
