The grapes, carefully selected from the oldest vineyards on the farm, are destemmed and transferred into stainless steel tanks for the start of alcoholic fermentation lasting 25-30 days with daily manual punching down.
At the end of fermentation the wine ages in large wooden barrels, where every week “batonnage” is performed on the lees up to spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
BULK AND BOTTLE AGEING
For approximately 8 months in steel tanks, from 12 to 18 months in large barrels and approximately 6 months in bottles before being placed on the market.
Monte Tundu is a Cannonau that ages in large oak barrels, and expresses the longevity and character of this great native grape variety, here in its classic version. Fine and elegant olfactory profile, with aromas of red fruits in jam, rose petals and sweet spices. With medium tannicity, warm and a long, enveloping finish.
