Forti del Vento
Maia Cortese 2019
The hand-harvested grapes are carried to the cellar in plastic bins of modest capacity (18 kg). Double-sorted, destemmed. The must spontaneously ferments (indigenous yeast only) for up to 30 days 10 days in stainless steel vats with skin contacts. No temperature control. Manual and frequent pump overs.
The malolactic fermentation occurs naturally.
The wine ages in inox tanks for roughly 6 months and then is bottled. Before the market’s release, the wine rests other 3 months in the bottle. Unfined and unfiltered. No cellar’s manipulation.
No added sulfites.
