The handpicked Brachetto grapes of Matteo Correggia farm are dried in crates for two to three months with ample air circulation. After the evaporation of excess water the grapes with high-sugar content are crushed and left with skins, seeds, and stems in contact with the juice. This intensifies the sensuous aroma and sweet flavor.
The liquid undergoes six to seven days of maceration in steel vats with frequent pumping over to let the juice retain light ruby color.
The wine is then transferred to large stainless steel tanks to ferment further for 20 days.
This Anthos Brachetto wine is then moved into oak barriques where it ages for eight months and after that it is bottled and marketed for sale.
