The grapes to produce Recioto “TB” are selected in the middle of September. They’re brought in the Fruttaio and left in
wooden plateaux where they are left to dry naturally for 6 months.
In March the grapes are pressed, and fermentation starts with selected yeasts after 15 days of maceration. During the next 30 days pumping-overs and skins submersion are performed daily.
After this period, the wine is moved to a steel tank with its fine lees.
It completes its fermentation and aging in wooden barrels.
