From The Producer
Pajè is one of the historic vineyards of the village of Barbaresco and is located in the center of the vineyard area of the country.
It is particularly rich in limestone marl, with a high content of active limestone, it opens onto the valley of the Tanaro river, which mitigates cold winters and hot summers; it is a small strip of land facing South West.
The historic Carso vineyard derives from the Piedmontese dialect "Cors" and is close to the fortresses of Barbaresco with exposure to the east and sandy limestone clay soil.
The dolcetto plants for this wine have a minimum age of over 45 years and the vines are exclusively of mass origin with woods obtained by pruning from the same vineyards.
The harvest takes place in September, with perfect physiological, manual maturation, in small boxes. Before being vinified, the grape follows 2 manual selections to check the perfect integrity of the fruit.
Fermentation takes place exclusively in wooden vats thanks to a pied de cuve of indigenous yeasts and lasts for about ten days.
Subsequently, the ancient technique of maceration of the submerged cap splinting is applied, which lasts for at least 3 months (90-100 days).
The wine then ages in a neutral oak barrel for about a year.
