Grapes and their vinification
Made from Sangioveto grapes (in this area called Morellino) and a small quantity of Malvasia nera and Alicante grapes, the "Bracaleta" wine is vinified with skins for at least 15 days, in contact with the skins.
The "Bracaleta" is a field selection wine, aged in small, Slavonian, 5,5 hl oak casks.
