Terre del Colleoni Merlot 2018 Vite Natural Durante Tosca

The Tosca company cultivates the vineyard and vinifies the grapes produced following the dictates of organic agriculture. The vineyards are in Pontida, in the westernmost part of the Terre del Colleoni appellation, at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level.

In the Tosca vineyards the soils are different, because here the substratum is made up of limestone-clayey rock from the Cretaceous period and a particular type of Lombard Flysh, that of Pontida. The flysh is composed of sedimentary deposits formed in the marine environment.

Type of cultivation: spurred cordon, with a density of 5000 plants per hectare and a yield of 50 quintals.

Harvested by hand, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers.

Refine in the same containers for 6 months.

The Terre del Colleoni Doc denomination extends and embraces, from east to west, almost the entire hilly area of ​​the province of Bergamo. From Predore on Lake Iseo to Cisano Bergamasco.

The Vite Natural Durante line is the Monovitigno line of the Tosca company. The added value lies in the adoption of the stelvin cap for the entire line, a closure system of which we at wineilvino are also convinced supporters. That’s why the name “Vine”.
