The Grechetto Gentile grapes are rigorously selected and hand-picked to preserve the quality of the bunch.

The bunches are harvested within the first ten days of September to preserve the acidity of the grapes.

Once harvested, the whole bunches are taken to the cellar and inserted directly into the press to be processed.

Vinification method

The must is left to rest for a whole night, before starting the fermentation which takes place at a controlled temperature, so that the polyphenols can be well extracted.

After fermentation, in winter we carry out various decantations, avoiding any type of filtration to keep the quality of the wine high, a fundamental activity in preparation for bottling.

When spring arrives, with the April moon, it is bottled to obtain a natural refermentation in the bottle, with secondary fermentation and slow aging on its own yeasts.

After 15 months of aging, the yeasts are removed by disgorgement.

It is done by placing the bottle on its tip and then venting to the Volée without freezing the neck of the bottle.

Characteristics Land and Vineyard

Our Grechetto Gentile vineyard was planted in 2003. It extends over 3 hectares, located in the plain between Castelfranco Emilia and San Cesario sul Panaro, south of Via Emilia, not far from Modena.

The rows were planted maintaining a north-south orientation, to maximize the exposure of the fruit to the sun. The characteristics of the soil are typical of the Modena area, which is clayey earth, with a good availability of water and organic substances.

It is the ideal soil for growing and producing grapes that will produce very fresh and extracted wines.

Gastronomic combinations

Our Pignoletto Modena Doc Frizzante is a very versatile wine, perfect for a good aperitif.

It goes well with egg-based appetizers, young cheeses and cold cuts.

It can also be paired with risotto with vegetable sauce, fish-based first courses, such as spaghetti with salmon or spaghetti with clams in white sauce, with white meats and fish dishes, both baked and grilled.
