Sanavento

Vintage 2019

2019 started slowly due to a long-lasting winter season. A rainy April and a fresh May produced a season in line with more traditional development. The high temperatures during June and July combined with the availability of water in the soil to create the conditions for rapid plant growth. August was mild with good rainfall. The harvest started regularly. The grapes were healthy with slightly higher acidity than the average and, for the red ones, a high accumulation of anthocyanins and an excellent polyphenol profile.

Winemaking Information

PRE-FERMENTATION PROCEDURES: Grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrant table and chilled with carbonic snow to avoid oxidation and reduce considerably the use of sulphur. After destemming, berries are hand-sorted on a second vibrant table and finally softly crushed.

This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible.

FERMENTATION PROCESS: The must is cooled to preserve its best characters before fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The maceration is long acting using délestage and, partially, submerged cap technique for over 20 days.

OAK REFINING: The ageing of 20 months is made in medium size oak casks (2500-4000 litres).

The difference is...

SANAVENTO is appreciated for its harmony and elegance due to silky tannins and soft acidity. Thanks to the careful handling during the fermentation process, the grape characters are perfectly included in the power of the wine. SANAVENTO results in a compelling, rich and outstanding Barbaresco.
