"The height of the wine cellar is exploited, making the most of gravity to move the grapes, must and wines. After de-stemming, the steel maceration tanks are fed from a height without using pumps or augers, which can damage the solid part of the grape. Maceration, together with intense pumping and punching down, is carried out for 10 days at a controlled temperature. After de-vatting and first racking, the wine is decanted partly into steel tanks and partly into barrels for malolactic fermentation."
Ageing: wines made from a blend of vines are aged separately for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine is assembled before bottling and refined for a further 4 months." -Winery
"Campo alla Sughera is Knauf's winegrowing company based in the heart of Bolgheri, the homeland of great Italian wines. It is in this place that Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are able to express their great qualities. This ability to emerge from the "terroir" of Bolgheri is the basis of the company’s products. Adeo (Bolgheri DOC Rosso), a "blend" of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, refined for twelve months in French oak barrels and matured in the bottle for approximately four months." -Winery
"The vineyard was conceived according to two cardinal principles: maximum grape quality and maximum mechanization during growing. Campo alla Sughera has thus created a highly specialized vineyard which covers an area of about 20 hectares. The plots making up the vineyard are all located inside the Bolgheri DOC area, bordered by the Fosso di Bolgheri waterway, which runs alongside the estate itself."
"This is a terroir which is perfectly suited for the production of top quality wines, both red and white. The micro-climate benefits from sea breezes from the coast, which is just a few kilometers away." -Winery
