Soave Superiore Runcata DOCG

Pure Garganega grapes grown in a single vineyard called Runcata. The vineyard faces southwest and is located on a plateau. The vines enjoy southwest exposure and limestone-based soil, rich in basalt and in grey and black tuff of marine origin. The grapes are exclusively picked by hand, at least two separate times to ensure that only perfectly ripe clusters are picked. The clusters are then carefully inspected before being de-stemmed and pressed with an Inertys system, which uses inert gas to prevent the aromas in the must from oxidizing. The free-run must is fermented at controlled temperatures in large oak barrels.

Runcata ages twelve months in large, temperature-controlled oak barrels, on its fine lees, further developing its structure and richness. After bottling, the wine ages an additional four months before release.
