Cantina Salvioni


Following the grape harvest, fermentation and racking take place in stainless steel tanks in the cellar located just beyond the vineyards, out in the country. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, most of the future wine is aged in 20 hl Slavonian oak casks in the cellars beneath our family home, in the centre of Montalcino. Like that we feel we’re keeping an eye on it even at night, when we’re all asleep. Though the wine is actually bottled back at the Cerbaiola estate, it’s beneath our house in town that it undergoes the necessary bottle ageing before being released.
