WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Chakra Essenza is the fruit of a centuries-old vineyard lovingly cultivated in the heart of Puglia, between the Canale di Pirro and the Valle d'Itria. This Essenza is a tribute to the unconditional love between men and vines.
A pure Verdeca in which the grapes are harvested separately: a part is harvested a few days in advance to obtain the "pied de couve", so as to guarantee the rest of the mass a fermentation with indigenous yeasts, while the remainder is softly pressed; the must ferments in steel at a controlled temperature. A third of the mass is finally vinified with maceration of the skins.
At the end of fermentation, after the first racking, the wine remains on the fine lees for a year. Finally, it ages 6 months in the bottle.

TERROIRWe are in the Itria Valley, south of Bari up to the provinces of Brindisi and Lecce, in a karst depression characterized by a surface with a uniform pedoclimatic profile. The climate of the valley is characterized by harsh winters and long and windy summers, with significant nocturnal temperature variations.
The classic red soils, of calcareous and clayey-calcareous nature, constitute the optimal substrate for white grape vineyards, oriented to the south-east, which develop sophisticated aromas and a good degree of acidity. The main grape varieties grown are: Verdeca, Bianco d'Alessano and another native grape varieties that have been rediscovered in this valley as Impegno, Francavidda, while Ottanaviello dominates among the reds.
