ALEATICO is produced from Aleatico grapes grown in the countryside of San Donaci (Brindisi, Puglia_Italy) with the typical Apulian sapling system. The production of wine starts from the maceration of the grapes and the juice which takes place at a controlled temperature. Subsequently, the fermentation of the must is interrupted with repeated decanting to remove the yeasts. Aging takes place in the wood.
