  Soil type: light clayey
Vinification: to obtain the BRICCO wine, gentle pressing of grapes is first carried out. The draining must is then put into stainless steel vats for static decanting (only cold decanting) in order to divide all heavy particles making the liquid turbid. After decanting, particles are eliminated with one racking and must fermentation can start. Fermentation takes place at 16 °C after inoculation with selected yeasts. When fermentation ends, the wine is poured off and maturation starts, always in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature.
Refinement: in stainless steel vat at controlled temperature
