Canavese DOC Rosso
Cieck Rosso is a modern interpretation of the wines that were traditionally produced in our area in the past. Both wines and vineyards were rarely single varietal. People would better choose a mixture of grapes that could give a good harvest every year and a nice, harmonious wine. We harvest the different grapes varieties almost at the same time. The grapes are de-stemmed and the grapes are then left to soak. Winemaking occurs according to the traditional “cappello emerso” technique. The wine then ages in oak barrels for 12 months and is bottled about 18 months after harvesting. Cieck Rosso then fines in bottle for 6-8 months.
