ROERO RISERVA “CAGIRA” D.O.C.G.
After the harvest, strictly by hand, in October, the grapes are pressed to separate the stalks from the grapes and fermented with the skins. Fermentation takes place in steel or vitrified cement barrels for about 10 days at a temperature of 26-28 °C. During this period, the skins and pips release color and tannins.

It is then racked to remove the lees and after about 2 months it is put in barrique to carry out the second fermentation (malolactic fermentation) and where it will take on the hint of barricade. After 6-8 months, the wine is racked into larger wooden barrels where it will remain for 6 months before being bottled and left to age for at least 3-4 months.
