CURTEFRANCA BIANCO DOC
VIGNA RAMPANETO 2017
The Rampaneto vineyard is property of the Cavalleri family since May 28 1842. It has always been dedicated to the production of white Curtefranca and since 1984 it has been bottled as single-varietal wine, first cru in Franciacorta.
Rampaneto is made from the grapes from the vineyard Rampaneto, that has always shown a strong personality, expressed with a unique flavor.
Armed with this characteristics, so typical and distinctive, and in order to safeguard the integrity and vitality of the earth on which the vine grows, we decided to approach right here, in the heart of the vineyard Cavalleri, the early practices of biodynamic agriculture.
Natural treatments of coverage (copper and sulfur) are integrated with biodynamic preparations and green manure. Through low yield we give maximum attention to the aromatic complexity, structure and evolutionary potential of this unique cru of chardonnay.
In the cellar the wine is traditionally held: soft pressing, racking and fermentation in stainless steel vats and in old barriques.
