Aging

The wine obtained rests in vitrified cement tanks, where it is aged for 5/6 months, before bottling.

Vinification

After the harvest, the freshly picked grapes are taken to the cellar and de-stemmed. A pre-fermentation cold maceration follows for about 24 hours in order to extract the typical aromas of the vine. Selected yeasts are added to the free-run must and it is sent to fermentation, which takes place at a controlled temperature between 24° and 26° for about 15 days, 10 of which in contact with the skins.

Vineyards

Borga’s 33 hectares of vineyards lie at 6m above sea level on the plains of the Municipality of Chiarano. Here, the soils are a mixture of sand, clay and silt, and our sites are characterised by small crops of walnut tree and poplar groves.

Our area is rich and abundant, thanks to the Piave river and its tributaries, both current and past, that supply us with plentiful water and micro and macro elements, from boron to phosphorus and potassium.
Arboreal vegetation hugs the banks of the Livenza river that crosses our territory, and we are surrounded by woods of ancient origin such as the famous “Bosco di Olmè” in Cessalto.

We feel part of this beautiful ecosystem, and
believe it is our duty to shout out loud about
this hidden gem of a winemaking area!
