Winemaking process:

The grapes are selected and hand harvested in Cascina Rocco, on loose soils, mainly silt-clayey. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks with the must on the skins for three days. With the use of indigenous yeasts only, a slow natural fermentation occurs  before spending at least 6 months in a large acacia wood barrel.

 

In the local dialect of 19th century, Reìs means “roots”.

The REIS vineyard was planted in 1985 and the yields are therefore very low. This years production is just 2960 bottles. Organic and biodynamic methods are followed.

 

Best served at slighlty chilled beetween 12-14°C, let it breathe before drink.

Store in cool and dark place keeping the bottle l
