CIMAIO Casalfarneto, Le Marche: "Emotional wine"

Vintage and vinification: 
- The grapes, which are completely covered by the 'noble mould', are harvested in an exceptionally advanced stage of ripeness (at the end of November – the beginning of December) and taken to the winery in small baskets to avoid damage to the individual grapes.

- the wine is obtained using white wine vinification methods: 
• Crushing of whole grape clusters
• Extraction of the flower must only
• Must clarification by cold settling
• Temperature controlled fermentation
• Aging in part in burnt wood barrels and in part in stainless steel tanks where full maturity is reached after 18-24 months
• Tartaric stabilisation refrigeration at -4° C for 6 days
• Cold sterile bottling with microfiltration 
• Aging in bottles for at least 6-12 months
