Tenuta di Castellaro Ypsilon Rosso
The latest addition to the Castellaro home: a new red wine that takes its name from the geographical shape of the Aeolian archipelago, which draws a Ypsilon lying on the sea, off the Sicilian coast.
Low temperature vinification with short maceration of the wine with the skins. No clarification takes place, only static decantation and repeated racking to make the wine naturally clear before bottling.

Handpicked with selection of the bunches
The de-stemmed grapes are fermented by the yeasts naturally present on the grapes. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine is decanted into steel containers where it refines and carries out the malolactic fermentation. Aging always takes place in steel for about 1 year. The wine is not subjected to any clarification, but just static decanting before bottling.
