Harvest Report: Drying the Trebbiano and Malvasia Grapes for the Vin Santo

Vin santo tuscany

Today, our workers have laid out on the mats the Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes that they picked today to dry them with the scope of producing our Vin Santo.

The drying takes place in the "Vinsantaia", a very well aerated place where this process takes place in a natural way.

After the drying, the grapes will be submitted to gently pressing and the must will be transferred to the inside of "caratelli", the special casks for the production of the Vin Santo, for a long and slow fermentation on the mother yeast, who, simultaneously with the aging, will endure for many years and will give the Vin Santo its characteristic aroma.
