Carbonic Maceration: It is a vinification technique invented by a team of French researchers in 1934.

It enhances the fresh and fruity scent and flavor of the wine giving to the consumers a slightly tannic product.

The French use only grapes from the Gamay vine while our winemakers at the Principe di Corleone Winery prefer using many kinds of red berry vine varieties to obtain unique products
