Farm - The cellar
The original cellar built into the tuff now has a store of wooden barrels, the various types of which fully reflect the company philosophy: the tradition of ageing the Vino Nobile in large barrels of Slavonian oak is maintained, supported by newly introduced woods, approximately 300 casks from the most prestigious French coopers. Vinification takes place in stainless steel containers and follows rigid protocols established for each vineyard.
In recent years the business has acquired the most modern equipment to mature the musts and wines, and the techniques applied in the cellar are the result of continual experiments carried out over the years by Tenuta Valdipiatta.
The final stages of maturation in bottles take place in specially equipped rooms providing the best conditions of temperature and humidity.
The winery has a continuous and permanent collaboration with an agronomist and a winemaker, and highly-esteemed consultations with Professor Yves Glories, Head of the Oenology Faculty of the
V. Segalen University of Bordeaux.
