Vinification

The first-run white must is obtained from red Merlot grapes by crushing and partial destemming and a very gentle subsequent pressing, and then fermented in stainless-steel tanks at a temperature of 18 - 20° C. In order to preserve its crisp varietal character the Contrada is not allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation.
