ITALIAN FINE RED WINE
The Vinum Colline Pescaresi I.G.T. is a fine organic wine, which blend is a unique one worldwide. Roberto Dragani designed this wine a few of years ago, and his vinification process is innovative.
A miticolous selection of the best grapes occurs first in the vineyard, then in the cellar. After pressing and macerating the must for 18 hours on the grapes skins, Roberto does a “salasso”: he separates a part of the must from the rest. This technique allows to concentrate the remaining must during the maceration, extracting the typical grape’s feature. The fine polyphenols are slowly extracted from the skins, and they merges gently with the must thanks to daily softly délestages.
The alcoholic fermentation occurs on skin contact, and only following the wine is separated from the skins, doing a soft skin pressure. The malolactic fermentation occurs in 3rd passage French oak barrique, and the wine slowly ages and stabilize in these 225 litres barrel.
This innovative vinification technique is the result of a long term project which Roberto and his colleagues follow since a lot of years, the aim to create a unique wine which is representative of the Center of Italy terroir.
