Manually harvested at phenolic ripeness then crushed, de-stemmed and pressed using the very best monitoring and pro-duction technologies to maintain purity. The wine then settles, is racked off, and cultured yeasts are added. The wine then waits in controlled cold fermentation at 16C. Fermentation is followed by further racking, and the wine is kept on fine lees with regular batonage. The finished wine is kept in airtight and temperature controlled barrels and bottling is carried out several times a year on demand in order to ensure an always fresh product. The wine is stabilized and bottled in sterile conditions following aseptic filtration. Giol is the oldest bonded winery in Italy (1427).
