Filare Maiore

Indicazione Geografica Protetta

Product Description

Filare Maiore is the expression of our Trebbiano Spoletino white grape which is an ancient variety peculiar to Umbria that has been cultivated in the area of our estate since a long time. The grapes are indeed grown in the immediate sorroundings of Spina on sloping hills, while the soil is clayey and rich in limestone and silt.

Immediately after hand-harvesting the grapes are gently destemmed and pressed. The must remains in contact with the skins at low temperature for a short time before being separated by a gentle pressing. The fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled (14-17°) stainless steel tanks.

The ageing cosists in a long-term contact with the fine lees until the springtime when the wine is bottled. It refines in the bottle before being ready for sale.
