COLLI DI SCANDIANO E DI CANOSSA D.O.C. MALVASIA – SPECIAL WINES
Obtained by vinifying pure aromatic Malvasia di Candia grapes; This vine has been present since ancient times on the gentle hills and gravelly lands of the Apennine margin of the Province of Reggio Emilia.
Generally in mid-August; the grapes are harvested strictly by hand.
After a soft pressing, the must is placed inside steel tanks where the primary alcoholic fermentation begins, which normally lasts about 9/10 days. In this period, the winemaker decides, in his opinion, to add selected yeasts to control the fermentation parameters and improve flavor and aromas. Once the desired alcohol content has been reached, this fermentation is stopped at a low temperature. After the last stabilization and filtration operations, the wines are bottled.
