The end of fermentation of grapes for Amarone and Recioto
As the fermentation of Recioto and Amarone grapes within the stain-steel barrels finishes,
the new wines remain, once being separated from dregs, to decant for some days in the same steel barrels.
That operation is good toclean the same wine from the heaviest dregs,
which can provide nothing else butbad smell and unpleaseant sensations.
As the cleaning is overwines, with still some solid rests in it, are separated from the remaining solid parts and moved to
the “small” oak, meaning 500 liters tonneaux, to start with the ageing.
Next month we'll be telling about the passage of new Amarone and Recioto to the “small” oak.
