Antonio Vallana Gattinara 2012


Winemaker Notes:
The grapes are hand harvested and manually selected before crushing, and then transferred to cement tanks for a 24 hour cold soak. The cement thermally insulates the must, and the fermentation temperature rises gradually: this is ideal for the extraction of color and structure while preserving the freshness of the bouquet. Fermentation lasts about 10 days and pumping over is performed during the whole fermentation period. Occasionally, a delestage is performed. Vallana’s Gattinara undergoes malolactic fermentation during the first winter. In spring it is transferred into large oak barrels (7-12 Hl) for 24 months, and the wine must age for at least another year in accordance with the rules of the DOCG. However, Vallana traditionally ages the wine in bottle a few more years before releasing it.
