PRODUCTION PROCESS. Riserva del Fondatore is the signature wine
of three generations of winegrowers’ love for their territory and dedication for
traditional wine-making traditions. We’re proud to combine old traditions with
modern wine-making techniques to produce an authentic expression of the
terroir as a tribute to the founder of the winery. The grapes are harvested by
hand and carefully selected before they are placed to rest and dry in the process
known as the “Appassimento” method for 3 to 4 months. After fermentation,
the wine is moved in small French oak barrels for 24 months followed by fining
in the bottle.
