Vineyard of production: 

The vineyards where Macchialuna is produced are two, located just below the cellar, at an altitude of about 430 meters. The two vineyards are small in size, covering a total of about 1.5 hectares, cultivated with Petit Manseng and Sauvignon Blanc. The Vineyards are located on a clayey soil very rich in limestone lithoids, sediments of marine origin from the Mio-pliocene age and volcanic rocks linked to the Pleistocene activity of Monte Amiata. The characteristics of the soil and a very accurate viticulture techniques aim at the highest quality, leading to a very low yield, between 50 and 60 quintals per hectare.

Vinification and Aging: 

The harvesting time is determined by optimal ripeness of the grapes: Sauvignon Blanc is generally around the beginning of September, for Petit Manseng is normally around the end of the same month. The grapes are selected and harvested manually with a careful selection in the field. Those grapes are freshly picked in baskets and then then cooled in a refrigerated cell up to 6 degrees Celsius. At this stage there is a second selection after wich a cold maceration occurs, wich can vary from 6 to 12 hours, depending on the vintage. After that, the vinification operations are carried out in steel vats at a controlled temperature. The whole microvinification process (we always have small masses) is then thermally controlled and selected yeasts work at precise temperatures.
After the vinification phases, the aging in steel starts and last for about 8-10 months.
The wine then rests in bottle for at least 8-12 months.
