Vinification of San Giovanni Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC from Castello della Sala
This white wine is made from Grechetto 50%, Procanico 25%, Pinot Bianco and Viognier 25% grapes. The first vintage of San Giovanni was produced in 1990.
The grapes are harvested one after the other and separately at the time of perfect ripeness and are also vinified separately. Part of the must is macerated cold for 6 hours in contact with the skins before being added to the must obtained by gentle pressing of the grapes. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, then the wine remains on the fine yeasts for a few months, improving the structure, elegance and minerality, until the cuvée is formed and then bottled.
