SELECTIVE AND NATURAL PROCESS
The vinification process at MONTECASTRO is simple, selective and natural. However, we try to experiment with modern production techniques that respect the grape while enhancing aromas, maintaining the quality and balance, and particularly protecting the tannins.
The production warehouse has 16 concrete tanks, with a minimum capacity of 5,000 litres and a maximum of 16,000 litres. It also has 5 small stainless steel tanks to carry out controlled microvinification. All of the tanks have a hot-cold temperature control. The main reason we chose concrete tanks was because they maintain the temperatures well and they do not have static charge: this leads to having very pure wines. Moreover, these tanks, once the vinification is completed, are a great ageing element, constantly combined with the barrels.
