Description


Our Grechetto Gentile grapes are selected on the vine and rigorously harvested by hand to preserve the quality of the bunch.

The harvest takes place in the second decade of September, when the grapes are well ripened so that the characteristics of the grape are fully exalted.

Once harvested, the Grechetto Gentile grapes are left to rest in the cell for 24 hours, to start a whole cluster “maceration”.

They are then inserted directly into the press to be processed.

A soft pressing is carried out while maintaining the structure of the grape seeds and without crushing the stalks, a method that allows to obtain a high quality free-run must.

Land Features


Our Grechetto Gentile vineyard was planted in 2003.

It extends over 3 hectares located on the plain between Castelfranco Emilia and San Cesario sul Panaro, in the south of Via Emilia not far from Modena.

The rows have been planted maintaining a north-south orientation, to maximize the exposure of the bunches to the sun.

The characteristics of the soil are typical of the Modena area, clay-loam type, with a good availability of water and organic substances.

Ideal soil for the cultivation and production of grapes that will produce very fresh and extracted wines.

Vinification Method


The fermentation of the Grechetto Gentile must, takes place at a controlled temperature, to obtain a good extraction of the polyphenols.

The aging takes place inside steel barrels with a long elèvage sur lies.

This procedure takes place by making it rest on the fine lees of the must for a long time, thus obtaining a much more intense aromatic bouquet.

Gastronomic Combinations


Our dry Pignoletto Modena Doc is a wine that goes well with light dishes, such as light appetizers, fish crudités.

It is also ideal when enjoyed together with risotto, mushroom dishes and white truffle.

Second courses such as white meats, grilled and baked fish, enhance its flavour.
