Winemaking

The grapes coming from vineyards in the surrounding of Cascina Spinotta on the upper side of "Langhe" hills. These grapes give wine with great structure and acidity, thanks to the soil richness in limestone and clay. These conditions grant the perfect base for long aging on the yeasts. After the hand-picking, grapes are softly pressed and the must starts the fermentation in stainless tanks with controlled temperature. Foaming has done by Martinotti Method: the wine remains 6 months on the yeasts in a pressurized tank. After that "Valcrös" is now ready for filtration and bottling.
