Winemaker Notes

The grapes for Baci are left on the vine longer in order to achieve a “late harvest” style, shriveling the ultra-ripe berries to 29 to 30 brix. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, hand sorted and then whole berries are fermented in tank before pressing and three days of cold soaking. Individual lots are moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, chocolate flavor added, then barrel aged in French and Hungarian oak for 14 months prior to bottling.
