Salsedine - Offida Pecorino DOCG

Reserve

Salsedine was born from a desire to wait, to comply with time and territory, which plays its (great) role in the birth of a wine. It was born from the desire of two brothers to enjoy the treasures of their homeland, being aware that it is the tool to express their personality, their own production philosophy. Each vintage defines itself. We want to push the wine in the right direction by urging it to find its character. While tasting, close your eyes and you will find yourself there, facing the sea.

  • Harvest period: the grapes were harvested in the first ten days of September 2018 (this variety has the advantage of achieving excellent sugar production, while maintaining a good level of total acidity; by modifying the harvest by a few days, it is possible to enhance the freshness or structure of the wine).

  • Harvest method: hand picking, in crates, early in the morning.

  • Vinification: we harvest in the very early hours of the morning, the grapes are hand picked and put into small crates, so that the fruit carried to the cellar is still intact and not stressed by the high temperatures of the day. The destemmed grapes are put into the press and 20% of the free-run must is transferred into new barriques after an initial clarification of 12 hours. Here the alcoholic fermentation takes place followed by the malolactic fermentation which will determine the residence times of the wine in barriques. After 5 months and repeated batonage, the wine is transferred into tanks where it is blended with the rest. After natural clarification, the remaining 80% of the must is fermented at a controlled temperature of about 16 °. Once fermentation is over, the wine ages on its lees for 5 months.
