Winemaking: The south-facing Ripe al Convento vineyard, where Sangiovese grapes are grown, is located 450 metres a.s.l. and is characterised by its schist-based Galestro soil. The grapes were picked by hand after being carefully selected in the vineyard. Once they arrived at the cellar, they were carefully checked once again and sorted manually one by one. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at acontrolled temperature with frequent pump-overs, particularly during the early stages, so that the colour and structural components were properly extracted. Afterwards, the wine was aged in wooden containers, resulting in excellent stability and greater complexity in terms of aromas and structure. 6 years after the grapes were picked, and only after another period spent ageing in the bottle, Ripe al Convento is now ready to be placed on the market.
