AZIENDA MASIERO Urban 2017, Italy (Red)
Certification : Organic
Grapes : Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Region : Veneto, Italy
Vinification : The wines are made in the vineyard and not in the cellar. They only harvest by hand and collect in small boxes to avoid any pre-crushing and fermentation. The best grapes of the year are collected and let to dry naturally for up to 4 months. They do not control the fermentation with sulphites or enhancers. They start with a pied de cuvee and the natural yeasts in our grapes do the rest. Partial de stemming and whole cluster fermentation is involved. When completely dry they let the must macerate for 2 months. They then soft press and age for at least 2 years in special ceramic barriques. No filtration, no blends, no chemicals, only a little sulphites added before the bottling phase. 6 months of additional ageing in bottle before marketing.
