More details: Suitable for vegans. The grapes are destalked and softly pressed then macerated over an extensive period of time with the main fermentation occurring on the skins for 30 days at a controlled temperature of 24°C. After racking, the wine undergoes secondary fermentation for another 40 days before it is transferred to stainless steel tanks. It then ages for at least three years in 2000 l oak barrels before being bottled. Groups of 500 bottles each are then placed into large crates and kept in temperature controlled warehouses for further ageing.

The Bressan family estate of 20 hectares is located in Farra d'Isonzo in the south of the Friuli region in Italy. Fulvio is the ninth generation of winemaker in the family since Giacomo Bressan, born in 1726. With an experience of almost 300 harvests behind him, Fulvio Bressan runs his domain following strict rules of hand harvest, exclusive use of natural fertilisers, fermentation with indigenous yeasts, ban of synthetic chemical products as well as biological and chemical aromas, no filtration and no sulphites added to the must.
