The Cellar and Wine Tour
Built in stone, the medieval cellar unfolds under the Villa Il Borro where the process of wine making silently takes place: here everything is in favor of nature’s cycles and it is here that the simple fruits are transformed into wine. In 2004 the owners built an underground tunnel used as the barrique cellar for wood and wine ripening. This area also connects the new cellar to the original one via a highly suggestive and fascinating route.
The wine making process
The harvest is done entirely by hand: the grapes are manually harvested and chosen carefully, they are destemmed , pressed and conveyed to the steel or wood vats for fermentation. Maceration of the skins is carefully carried out in order to optimize the process of extraction in order to obtain the utmost expression of the fruits of the vines and of the territory. The growth of the vines is a long process where refinement plays an equally important role and from time to time, French oaks are selected. Before the wine can leave the cellar, it must be placed in glass in order to achieve correct refinement.
