Following first fermentation, whole grape berries, picked slightly over-ripe, are added to the wine. The resulting second fermentation, traditionally known at “fare le grane (adding the berries)”, lasts a further ten or so days and allows increased extraction of compounds and aromatic extracts from the grape skin. It appears a deep, almost yellow, straw, and the nose releases intriguing fragrances of very ripe fruit. On the palate, it exhibits firm structure, expansive volume, and excellent balance.

Boccadigabbia

Elvio Alessandri's wine estate, is close to the sea and faces south-west. The vineyards are on sandy, chalk soil and stretch from the top of the hills to the Caronte depression which runs down into the Adriatic. The area has a micro climate quite different from some of the neighbouring valleys, with wide temperature variations. All the wines produced, from the simple to the most ambitious, are extremely successful.
