Our cutting-edge technologies
Steel tanks and oak barriques
For storing and refining are available 70 tanks of thermo-controlled steel. For the finest wines – the reserves, but also the “Rosso di Valbissera”- the aging is provided by French oak barrels and lasts from six months to two years. The local for the refinement is situated in an underground facility, to facilitate the control of temperature and humidity. Usually it hosts around 120 barrels.
A scanner for wine
The company relies on the best technology to offer a high quality product and an excellent balance between quality and price. For that reason during the production our winemakers work daily with the “Wine Scan” support, a chemical analysis instrument that using a small sample of wine allows to obtain important data, useful to our oenologist to fully evaluate the quality of the product. The risk of oxidation of the wine is avoided through the use of a nitrogen generator that allows to saturate the steel tanks, creating an internal oxygen-free environment.
An automated line
Once a product of excellence is obtained, the latter must be respected during the bottling phase, which takes place on site, through a totally automated line capable of ensuring a production up to four thousand bottles for hour. This operation completes the Wine of Milan, that is ready for commercialization.
