Azienda Agricola Luciano Capellini, Volastra (Manarola).
The aim of this winemaker is to preserve the bonds with the Cinque Terre wine tradition.
To produce this wine: the grapes are gently crushed and separated from the stalk and placed in a barrel for 24 hours. The subsequent pressing is carried out with a press at a controlled pressure. Once selected, the must is left to ferment without the addition of yeasts. Batonage operations are periodically carried out during the refinement phase of the wine. Towards June, after the last natural fermentation, the wine goes to the bottling.
