Donnafugata Tancredi

Vinification

Manual harvesting of grapes into crates with careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard. The harvest of the grapes destined for Tancredi began during the first week of September with the Nero d'Avola and continued until the second week of September with the harvest of the Cabernet Sauvignon and TannatA further selection is carried out in the cellar, thanks to a latest generation destemmer, able to discard the green and overripe berries that might still be on the clusters. Fermentation in stainless steel and maceration on the skins for 12 days at a temperature of 28 - 30° C (79 -86° F). Ageing for 14 months in new and old French oak barriques and then in the bottle for at least 30 months
