Traditional red wine making process, where the must (pulp) ferments together with the grape skins and carefully selected yeasts. The wine ferments in controlled temperature in stainless steel barrels and then ages for a long time in French oak barrels. Finally, the wine is bottled and stored in controlled climate rooms.
The wine is made in Piedmont, in Valle Roncati, a valley in the Novara hills, at the foothills of Monte Rosa. The acid glacial soil is rich with clay, sand and hundreds of different minerals. Sizzano, is one of the most prestigious appellations of Piedmont. The name comes from the village of Sizzano, where the wine is made.
The Sizzano wine was already popular in the Middle Ages among nobles and high clergy.
