Amarone DOCG "Col de Bastia" - 2018
Sumptuous and refined, the Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Col de Bastia originates in the vineyards located in Bastia, between the Val d'Alpone and the Val d'Illasi, at an altitude of four hundred and fifty meters. Here the grapes, grown in organic farming, are harvested manually during the last fifteen days of September and left to rest in the loft for four to five months, to favor the maximum concentration of colour, flavor and sweetness. During the winter the pressing takes place, then the fermentation begins, induced thanks to the natural yeasts. The must is decanted into wooden barrels where it completes the fermentation, and where the wine ages for up to thirty-six months before being bottled.
