During the harvest the grapes are carefully selected by a qualified team of people and carried in boxes. The grapes are dried for about 3-4 months in our drying rooms. Depending on the vintage, from the end of January to the end of February crushing and destemming. Fermentation takes place in small casks, max 5000 litres. The temperature is raised to 10° C, then it stays at around 15° C. Very long maceration, over 40 days with 2 weekly pumping over. After two decanting, when the wine is clean (may/June) it’s poured in wood: new French barriques and of second, third year for some years. Bottle fining for about one year.

Producer
The CASTELLANI MICHELE estate consists of about 40 hectars of directly owned or grown vineyards situated in the hillside area of the Valpolicella Classica. The planting system is pergola except for few vineyards that are cultiveted with the guyot system. The main varieties cultivated by the company are: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. An enlightening metaphor of the respect for tradition and the vision for the future is represented by the new vineyard at Maso, in the area of Negrar, a real natural amphitheatre which, with its sunny south/south-west exposure and its view over the hills from Verona to Lake Garda, seems to be the ideal stage where to present the best of the local wine production to the world. Both the new vineyard and the well renowned ones at Ca del Pipa and Castei, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, present high quality geo-morphological and viticultural features, like an ideal exposure, constant ventilation, soils with a well-balanced composition both in terms of nutrients and draining capacity, carefully-chosen training systems depending on the vine variety (“pergoletta” for Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, guyot for grapes like Oseleta or Croatina) with very excellent planting densities. These characteristics, combined with selective winter pruning and summer thinning operations aimed at controlling the natural growth, as well as the selection of the best harvesting time depending on the grapes phenolic and aromatic maturity, enable the company to harvest grapes at the peak of their organoleptic potential.
