Times of harvest and wine-making
Grapes are generally harvested from late August until the first decade of September, based on the climate and the specific variety of grape; for example, the Verdicchio variety is the first to be harvested among the types of grape that make the Nicolino wine. Produced in small sealed tanks (autoclavi) it undergoes a slow fermentation process and is looked after with the same care that is normally reserved to the best quality sparkling wines. For the elegance of its character, the Nicolino is closer to "cremant - classic" wines rather than to the generality of sparkling wines.
