More details: Suitable for vegetarians. The grapes are harvested by hand and then crushed separately without added sulphites. They macerate for a few days at a temperature of about 18°C to produce a fruity and plush wine. After devatting, the grapes continue to ferment at low temperature. After about a week, malolactic fermentation starts spontaneously. In January, following some minor clarification, the wine is filtered, bottled and put on the market after a couple of weeks.

The Azienda Agricola Vercesi del Castellazzo is located on the slopes of the Oltrepò Pavese hills, in the village of Montù Beccaria in the Italian province of Pavia, Lombardy. The 20 hectares of vines have a south-southeast and south-southwest exposure. The Vercesi family has been growing grapes there since 1808. Nowadays they produce 13 different wines - nine reds and four whites - made with Croatina, Pinot Noir, Barbera, Vespolina, Merlot, Uva Rara and Cabernet Sauvignon. Since 1995, the winery complies with the European legislation on the reduction of environmental impact. Their agricultural practices are designed to preserve nature. The vineyards are completely grassed, no herbicides are used, vine cuttings are shred not to deprive the soil of nutrients, copper and sulphur are the only fungicides employed. They do not use sulphur dioxide during vinification - only small amounts during the bottling process - and they rely on wild yeasts only.
