The cellar

Our cellar is equipped with all the most modern equipment for processing grapes, storage at controlled temperatures and bottling.  All stages are carried out with extreme care, always respecting our tradition. It is a general and traditional characteristic of Picollo wines to remain "sur lie", until bottling.
This procedure strongly reduces the need to use sulfur dioxide, resulting in a fresh, natural and very drinkable wine.
Once the must is obtained, during the vinification phase, fermentation takes place in thermo-controlled steel tanks. Subsequently, the wine becomes clear by natural decantation. The wines of the Picollo Ernesto winery are obtained in compliance with EU directives for the protection of human health and the environment.
