Winemaking Notes: The viticulture is certified organic (Ecocert), and the soils are tilled by hand. The yield is very small at 20 hl/ha. The fruit is manually harvested and gently pressed in a vertical press. Mano a Mano goes through semi-carbonic maceration in stainless steel. The wine is never pumped, and the fermentation is completed with native yeast. There is no SO2 used in the fermentation process. Neither fining nor filtering is done. This is terroir at its purest.
