Il Pugnitello gives birth to a wine with an unusual aromatic profile, particular and intriguing. The yields are naturally low, the bunches are very small, with the characteristic shape of a fist (pugno in Italian). The grapes are hand-picked then immediately sent to the cellar where a careful selection is made, on a double selection belt. The grapes are then separated from the stalks and drop by gravitation into the tanks where they undergo fermentation for about 25-30 days without the addition of selected yeasts. The wine evolves in barriques for about 12 months and later in a bottle for at least a year. The intense color with viola nuances, the good acidity, the finesse and the pureness of the characteristic perfumes of this rare indigenous variety, make the Pugnitello a wine with a great personality.
