Vinification | Aging

After harvesting, the grapes are macerated for about 14 hours at a temperature of 10/12°C in dedicated containers, protected from oxygen with innovative systems that recycle fermentation carbon dioxide, in order to minimize the use of antioxidants. Approximately 30% of the wine matures in large wooden barrels of 20/27 hectoliters and 5 hectoliters tonneaux, while the remaining portion is aged in stainless steel containers.

Bottling

The wine was bottled during the full moons between March and June 2023.

The Wine

"Bernizza" is a local place name: the slope of this hill is remarkable and therefore, in certain parts of the vineyard, a morphological reshaping intervention was necessary to introduce terraced areas in order to make the use of operating machinery less hazardous.

Once upon a time, from the valley floor of Cerò, the summit of Bernizza could be reached by following a path that cuts through the forest. For this reason, it is a cherished location for the Venica family, a memory of unity and gatherings, and an expression of the magic of the region where the forest merges with the vineyards and the vineyards emerge from the forest.

The vineyard and the vine

Ronco Bernizza

Chardonnay is a renowned white grape of French origin belonging to the "international" grape varieties. It is highly adaptable to various climates and terroirs, showcasing a different facet each time it encounters a new soil.

The vineyard

Through our cellar master's skilled use of wood in the winemaking process, a refined and perfectly balanced wine is crafted: the wood enriches the aromatic profile and structure, yet it does not overshadow the grape's inherent characteristics, enhancing the expressive nature of the vineyard site and the region. Therefore, our "Ronco Bernizza" is undoubtedly a fine interpretation of Chardonnay wine, as acclaimed by leading Italian wine guides.
