1465 – MCDLXV

This is our finest wine and it is dedicated to PODERE FORTUNA first proved vintage. 1465 is produced by grapes selected in few parcels of COLDAIA and FORTUNI vineyards. The grapes are hand-harvested in small boxes and selected by two different sortingĀ  tables before the vinification in French oak open vats with temperature control. The fermentation is completely natural, entrusted the only indigenous yeasts, and aimed to draw out the characteristics of the terroir and of the vintage. We exclude also any action to change natural acidity and tannins. Then, after about 18 to 25 days of fermentation, according to grapes conditions, the wine is left in Frence oak barriques for the following 12 months. After this period we let the wine settle in cement vats for the following six months just to let the winter frost to clean it and to give us the chance to bottle it without any filtration. In this way we leave in the wine all it need for a great ageing in the bottle.
