Picolit
Vinification

Half of the grapes is late harvested at the end of October with more or less consistent development of the Noble Rot; the other half withers in vine. Spontaneous fermentation of the must in French oak barrels and subsequent maturation in the same barrels for at least 20 months. Additional 24 months of ageing in bottle. Suitable for very long ageing; particular vintages can age over 40 years.
