  • Sale
  • Regular price $39.00

The grapes for the Cerasuolo are hand-harvested and selected from the very ripest Montepulciano vines and then undergo a short maceration on the skins of 24-36 hours inside concrete tanks until spontaneous fermentation begins. Part of the fermenting must is then transferred to terracotta amphorae where the fermentation continues unchecked. The newly fermented juice is left in the amphorae on the fine lees until the following spring when it is bottled unfined and unfiltered like the great god of wine, Bacchus intended.
