Harvested grapes were brought to the cellar, destemmed, gently crushed then transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place. Maceration on the skins lasted for a period of approximately 15 days at a controlled temperature of 28 °C (82 °F). Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred into oak barrels of varying capacities, between 30 and 80 hectolitres (793 - 2113 gallons), where the wine began a two-year period of barrel ageing.
Once Pian delle Vigne completed ageing in oak, the wine was bottled and underwent a lengthy period of ageing in the cellar.
Casks for a lengthy period of ageing in bottle.
