In the autumn mornings a thick fog envelops the vineyards of the Orvieto Classico. The grapes, in this particular microclimate, are gradually attacked by a particular mold, the Botrytis Cinerea which, if particular atmospheric conditions occur, turns into a noble mold. Morning light alternating with a mild and breezy afternoon climate is the sine qua non condition for this magic to manifest itself. This mold feeds, from the outside, on the liquid content of the fruit where it takes root, dehydrates the lake, concentrating its sugars and acidity. Botrytis Cinerea thus enhances the organoleptic complexity of the wine, giving it unique and unmistakable aromatic and gustatory notes. For the harvest, at least five or six successive harvests are needed, repeated at different times, distributed between October and December, in order to collect only the fruits rooted in the Noble Mold and to leave from time to time those not yet ready on the plant. The musts that are obtained are particularly dense, rich and fragrant. The subsequent fermentation takes place slowly and steadily for a prolonged period and stops naturally. naturalmente.
