WINEMAKING & AGING
The rare Malvasia Nera, softly pressed, is distilled in a bain-marie with a discontinuous copper still, adapted from the distillation of fruit and distributed by the distilleries of Gianni Capovilla. Double steam distillation is applied first on the marc and then on the spirits obtained, to separate the heart from the heads and tails. The final compound is diluted only with water and mineral salts before bottling.
