Vinifying in amphora, today, is a method of wine processing in great demand. The use of terracotta, in fact, has several advantages over other materials.
The use of terracotta containers allows a greater naturalness of the product, respecting the original characteristics of the chosen grapes.
This ancient technique dates back to the times of Greeks and is marked to leap into a future of experimentation and eco-sustainability.
ADVANTAGES OF VINIFYING IN AMPHORA:
–TRANSPIRATION:The porosity of the terracotta allows an exchange of oxygen with the outside, making the wine aging excellent in a totally natural way through a micro-oxygenation.
-THERMAL INSULATION:Terracotta is a material that allows the maintenance of a constant temperature, especially if the amphorae are buried, therefore a better yield of the wine.
–NEUTRALITY:Inside the terracotta amphorae, the wine maintains all its characteristics because this special material does not release excessive quantities of aromas, so it gives more sense to the choice of grapes and processing in the vineyard.
–PERPETUITY:Terracotta amphorae are eternal and do not deteriorate over time, so they represent an excellent investment.
