PARVUS PICULIT NERI
Production Area: Friuli Venezia Giulia
Vine: 100% Piculit Black
Planting method: Guyot with sixth plant of 4500 vines per hectare
Harvest: Grape Harvest starts from the middle of September with ripening of the grapes and continues in the various vineyard locations with manual crushing of the petiole to start the period of drying on the plant until the beginning of October. The actual harvest begins after about 15/20 days of drying, generally around the first half of October, then grapes are taken to the cellar for further qualitative selection and then destined for winemaking.
Vinification: Grapes are harvested to the best degree of sugar and phenol maturation and gently decomposed and pressed. Once the fermentation-maceration has begun, in controlled stainless steel vinoders, frequent replenishes and delestages are performed for about seven days to facilitate the extraction of the aromatic and phenolic component from the skins. Subsequently, the wine is finished and the wine ends its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barriques (225l) for 12 months. After that period, it is followed by aging in the bottle for about 6 months before placing the product on the market.
