Pressing

OUR GRAPES GIVE THEIR BEST WHEN UNDER PRESSURE.

03

A SPECIAL PRESSING PROCESS DIVIDES THE MUST INTO 4 FRACTIONS.

Once harvested and transported, the grapes are carefully divided according to their variety, vineyard of origin and ripening characteristics.

Subsequently they are loaded into special presses that allow us to apply pressure gently and gradually. The result is four fractions of must, each with different oenological characteristics.

CURIOSITIES.
Did you know that you can make white wine from black grapes?
Did you know that you can make white wine from black grapes?

Many white wines come from black grapes. In the case of Franciacorta wines, the black grape used is Pinot Nero. Only if it is decided to leave the must in contact with the skins for a period during the pressing phase will they release some of their colour and scents. In this case the result is a Franciacorta rosé. Otherwise, even from black grapes, you will always get a white wine.
