Winemaking Notes: The vineyards are maintained according to organic principles (certified) with some now being worked by horse and plow. At harvest, the grapes are crushed and undergo the primary fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks; then, the wines are ultimately racked into large oak casks to age before being bottled. The wines are neither fined nor filtered and are left to age in bottle for 18 months before being released.
Wine Name: Serra Sanguigna is the name of a prime zone in the interior of the Cirò appellation that is not only particularly beautiful but is responsible for producing classic wines of the appellation.
