viticulture

“More than Organic”, with the use of some biodynamic techniques. No chemical fertilizers and synthetic products are used during cultivation. Most years the vineyard is left untouched.

vinification

The Production of the “Cloe’” starts in the second half of September, with the harvest of the first optimally ripe grapes. The grapes are taken off the stem and pressed. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks, using only the indigenous yeasts present in the skins of the grapes.This process lasts for approximately ten or more days, depending on the desired color intensity of the wine. This process occurs naturally, without any additives nor sulfites. Decantation occurs naturally. The wine is unfiltered.

aging/elevage

The aging process lasts one year: six months in stainless steel silos and six months in chestnut barrels. The “Cloe’” is then bottled.

wine pairing

The “Cloe’” pairs very well with raw fish appetizers and vegetables. It is also well matched with pasta, risotto, fish and white meat dishes.

drinking temperature

Serve chilled (52 degrees)
