Trial 2.1

White

Wine Concept

Compare wines produced from grapes derived from two parcels of the same vineyard, varying only the production regime: Integrated Production versus Organic Production.

That’s why we recommend a comparative tasting with test 3.1.

Agriculture

Biological Production

The 2013 growing season was characterized by a wet spring and a hot summer. The high temperatures in the first two weeks of July caused the vermentino grapes to suffer leading to a loss in acidity.

Grape Varieties

Vermentino

Vinification / Maturation

The grapes for the tests 2.1 and 3.1 were vinified at the same level of maturity. The manual harvest began in the morning of 25/09/2013. The grapes were pressed, must decanted over 24 hours at 10ºC. Primary fermentation during 5 weeks at around 15ºC. The process was within the norms for vinifying biological wines.
