TENUTE PIANO REGIO (AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE SUPERIORE)
Aglianico del Vulture Superiore DOCG. The freshly picked grapes arrive in the cellar and are quickly de-stemmed and crushed to extract only the most noble and aromatic fractions from the peel and the outer area of the grape. Fermentation, at controlled temperature, takes place in refrigerated steel tanks. The maceration lasts 20-25 days, during which periodic pumping over is carried out so as to allow the must to appropriate all the trace elements present in the skins and to gently extract the coloring material. The racking takes place only when all the sugar has turned into alcohol. It is decanted in thermally insulated steel tanks, so as to maintain the post-fermentation temperature of around 22 ° C for a long time. In this way the malolactic fermentation starts and ends spontaneously. All the wine rests for 24 months in new 225l French oak barrels , medium toasted. It completes its aging in fine bottles for 12 months.
