Sesta di Sopra

SESTA DI SOPRA

The farmhouse and surrounding properties were acquired by the Spina Family, who restored the farmhouse, once a watch tower,  as well as the two-hectacre olive grove to its current state. Not long afterwards, a new vineyard was planted and a second vineyard was created. The farm's location is extremely favourable for olive and grape production thanks to the soil composition and microclimate. The vineyards are maintained using the most modern agricultural techniques. The cellar is small, but functional, and contains 30-hl Slovanian Oak barrels. The Spina family's vineyards have been planted with a selection of SangioveseGrosso clones. The harvest normally takes place at the end of September when grapes are collected with utmost care by hand and placed in small baskets in order to prevent blemishes and to guarantee the integrity of the product. After collection, the grapes are brought to the winery where the traditional wine making process begins.

Here the "grape must" is put through a pre-fermentative process at low temperatures.
