Vinification technique: The vine-harvest (completely done by hand) usually starts in the middle of September . We put the grapes in small boxes ( maximum capacity 15 kg each) and we bring them into a special drying room where we hang them on vertical nets in order to dry them. The room has got big windows and it is situated in a dry and windy place . The grapes are dried until the first days of March.

During the first week of March we press the grapes whit a traditional wine-press, then we transfer the must into small chestnut and oak  barrels called “ caratelli”.The capacity is 40-80 litres .

The Vinsanto refines in the barrels more than 9 years. Later it is manually bottled without filtering it.
