TWP is in complete control of the entire production process, starting with careful management of the grapes, and meticulous winemaking by our the highly talented winemakers Stefano Chioccioli. One of his great skills is to respect the provenance and style of each wine, making him the ideal winemaker for the diverse TWP portfolio. S.Chioccioli realizes the challenge of nurturing each and every TWP wine from grape to bottle, ensuring that they are all made to the highest quality standard and are true expressions of their provenance.
Harvest normally takes place between the second part of September and early October. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. With the addition of selected yeasts, fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 28°C. Frequent pumping over takes place in the early stages of fermentation in order to ensure optimum colour extraction and soft tannins. After fermentation, the wine is racked and the malolactic fermentation takes place in order to obtain perfect balance and harmony.
