Santo

It was the most important wine and it was served only on the most important occasions: the birth of a son, the bottle produced that year drunken on a wedding day, when 100 kilograms of grain was harvested, the visiting of a distinguished guest, a gift to the local priest or doctor. Along with this tale and this tradition along with improving the management of the vineyard – careful selection of the best bunches – La Montata continuously strives to improve preserving the finished product.

Winemaking Notes:
The harvested grapes are hung in single bunches for four to five months in a special room where a fireplace is periodically lit in order to smoke the grapes. A three-phase pressing follows, lasting 15 hours, which produces three different types of must. The must is left to cool for five days allowing the coarse sediments settle; then, when almost clear, it is ready for fermentation. At the end of this stage, it is transferred in 112lt. demi-barriques to allow for oxidation, where the wine ages for at least 36 months. Cold decantation and pouring follow. Finally, it is prepared to be bottled.
