Winemaking Notes:
Vinification: Grapes are selected by hand and undergo a prolonged skin maceration in steel tanks. Vinification takes place in steel tanks. After several months, Amarone dried grapes are added to the wine. A second fermentation takes place and the alcohol content rises as does the structure and complexity of the wine. Aging takes place in French barriques and tonneaux for 12 months.
Process and experimentation: Massimago limits the use of sulphites. Every year we start new experiments with the Oenology departments of the Universities of Milan and Conegliano (Padua).
