Pinot Noir 'Bella Vigna', Martinelli

Pinot Noir 'Bella Vigna', Martinelli

The grapes are picked between 25 and 27 degrees brix to ensure mature ripe fruit flavors. After picking, the whole berries undergo a long cool fermentation with wild yeast, to generate skin contact and expose fruit character. The juice is transferred into oak barrels with a touch of residual sugar remaining to complete the fermentation process in barrel until dry. It rests in 70% new French oak on its gross lees for one year. The wine is neither heat nor cold stabilized, and is un-fined and un-filtered, clarified only by racking before bottling.
