The Oltrepò Pavese, which means "beyond the Po River,” accounts for approximately 40,000 acres of vineyard planted in the southwestern part of Lombardy, Italy, on the right bank of the Po river, in the province of Pavia. Here the landscape of steeply rolling hills comprises limestone and clay-based soil, well-suited to the cultivation of vines. Only recently have the wines of Lombardy begun to acquire a well-deserved recognition that extends beyond regional borders. Traditionally these wines were sold in local country restaurants and taverns, along the banks of the Ticino and Po rivers
Wine maker notes
The grapes are picked at peak maturity in the second and third weeks of September. Fermentation takes place over 6-8 days under controlled temperatures of 30ºC in small stainless steel vats. The wine then is placed in larger oak barrels where it rests on its lees until malolactic fermentation has occurred. It is further aged in large sized receptacles to guarantee a complete refining at a temperature of 13-15 degrees Celsius.
