Nel vigneto

Abundant rainfall during the final months of 2019 led to better water availability for the vineyards. The budding of the vines was early; however, the wind conditions during flowering and the rain during the month of December required meticulous management of the vineyard. Subsequently, moderate temperatures and dry weather led to an excellent season for white wines. The production was above average with healthy grapes of excellent quality. An intense season with great potential, which required concentration and skill from the Simonsig team.

In the cellar

The bunches are hand-picked and pressed; a part of the must remains to macerate on the skins for the whole night. The must is then inoculated with selected yeasts, chosen for the production of fruity wines. The fermentation temperature is kept between 12 ° C and 14 ° C, in order to ensure a slow process capable of producing the best fruit flavor.
