Vinification: during the harvest, the selection

of the grapes too unripe

 and unsuitable, the destemming is done in compliance with the plot

 and the climatic season. In the cellar the vines are carried out

 separately and carefully in cryomaceration and fermentation

 at controlled temperatures for 12/15 days in steel tanks,

 to preserve and extract the primary aromas as much as possible

 and develop the softness that the future "Cispiano Classico" needs.

 Subsequently the wines are sent for malolactic fermentation,

 before aging for 12 months in French oak barriques.

The blend is created after this step, giving life to the final wine

 which rests for about a year in steel.
