Piastraia DOCG Bolgheri Superiore - Michele Satta
Supplier: Michele Satta
Made In: Tuscany, Italy
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese
Vinification: The fermentation of each variety is handled separately in cone-truncated oak barrels of 30 hl. Only natural yeasts are present. We start with two daily manual pressings of the cap of the wine eventually ending with one. An open pumping over procedure is made only if necessary. With frequent tastings we carefully choose the time of the drawing off (usually after about 20 days), from which the wine goes directly into barriques.
