THE CONFERENCE ROOM
The pursuit of quality starts from the harvest of the grapes, which is programmed according to the degree of ripeness. The grapes are carefully collected, they are deprived of the stalk; by doing so it is operating a first pressing, which preserves the integrity of the berry. Subsequently, thanks to a soft and gradual pressing and to a selective enzymatic maceration, we are able to better express the organoleptic characteristics of the fruit of the screw. The fermentation process that follows takes place at a controlled and constant temperature: in this way arise the scents and primary and secondary aromas of the wine, which characterize the personality and character.
The result of this painstaking work gives life to our wines, with Controlled Denomination of Origin “Colli Martani” and IGT “Umbria” and “Bettona” Traditional combination Grechetto, Trebbiano and Sangiovese, and other varietal wines such as Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon.
At the point of sale “Cantine Bettona” you can taste all the products and find excellent wines give as a gift.
