The Campofiorito estate is in the Corleone district and is the family’s pride and joy. It lies at altitudes ranging between 600 m and 1200 m above sea level.
The grapes are gathered in trays when they are fully ripe. They are destemmed and chilled, then transferred to fermentation vessels with selected yeasts. Here primary fermentation takes place for 8 – 12 days at a temperature of 22°C – 24°C. The wine is then racked to French barriques, where the malolactic fermentation process is completed. At the end of
the barrel ageing process of around eight months, the wine is bottled and left to rest for at least two months.
