The viticulture practices at Poggio di Bortolone is to restrict the number of bunches per vine to produce wine of the highest quality that exudes both character and personality. The viticulture is supported by vinification techniques using the latest available technology housed in a purpose-built underground cellar providing year-round temperature and humidity control.
The Petit Verdot vines for the Petitverdò red wine grow in the Poggio di Bortolone sandy-clay vineyards near Ragusa in South-eastern Sicily at an altitude between 220 and 270 m. The terrain is hilly throughout and therefore the day - night temperature variation range is high, which is ideal for the production of high quality grapes and wines.
The grapes were harvested by hand, carefully sorted and destemmed followed by 15 days fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks. After the malolactic fermentation stage the wine was left to age in stainless steel tanks for about 12 months.
Longevity 10- years.
