Red grape vines are cultivated in Borgo Montello (Le Ferriere), where the company’s cellar is also located, while almost all white grape vines are cultivated in Doganella di Ninfa, in Cori DOC area. Should you fancy a trip to the area, a visit to the beautiful and world renowned Garden of Ninfa is an absolute must.
The production capacity per hectare is reduced thanks to the lack of any kind of forcing method.
The cellar is equipped with modern technology. All the tanks are in stainless steel with exchanger to control the temperature, fermenters aso in stainless steel with Bosio or submerged-cap method.
The press gently extracts the must (0.7 atm), it features a vacuum system and with the aid of inert gas (nitrogen), the grape marc is never in contact with air.
Their logo represents a wind pump, which as Laura explained, was part of the landscape as she grew up on the farm. An affordable and necessary solution to the irrigation need of an area that may reach 37+ degrees centigrade in the summer.http://www.donatogiangirolami.it/en_US/
