Spanna ‘Cuvee Bernardo Vallana’, Vallana

This wine is the result of the work and the passion of the youngest generation of Vallanas.  However, it is also the fruit of an age-long family tradition, perfectly embodied in the XX century by Bernardo Vallana. The structure of the cellars on three layers, the size and the type of the fermentation tanks, the space for barrels and long-ageing bottles, most of the equipment the winery is still using today… all of this was designed or chosen by Bernardo Vallana. Most importantly, he left them with wines of incredible finesse and structure that are the greatest inspiration for their work and set the style of the winery.

The grapes are hand-harvested and put into small 20kg baskets.  After destemming, they are crushed and the must is transferred to large concrete fermentation vats under temperature control.  After 10 days, the fermentation is complete and the wine is transferred to wooden casks for one year.  It is then fined, filtered, and bottled, and aged for a period of time in the cellar before release.
