We love the wine making season...
The long hot sunny days of summer and some gentle rain in September this year have matured the grapes in the vineyards of Reschio and those of our house owners who have vineyards. We have been busy harvesting the bunches of grapes and the process of wine making has begun.
A majority of the grapes grown and the wines we make, including our Reschio wine, Rasènio, are reds from different grape varieties, such as Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Cesanese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
This year, we are making a ‘passito’ wine for one of our house owners from his white Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes. We are using a ‘vin santo’ technique obtained by the fermentation of grapes through natural drying. This we do by hanging the individual bunches of grapes in a light airy room with good ventilation for approximately 3 months until they reach that special passito level and are ready for pressing.
