In the Apulia region, among the dry stone walls, the ancient manor farms and the olive tree groves full of history, Frisino’s farming business was born. Today all that this unique land offers is preserved, handled and collected as a ritual handed down over time and in the hands of Mario, Francesco and Flavia Frisino.
Frisinō Vineyards consist of 4200-4800 stumps/per hectare that allow us to obtain an excellent grapes quality. The plants are with typical guyot yield in espalier structure. Furthermore a particular clay and calcareous soil, with a good altitude of 330 m.a.m.s.l. ensure wines a good acidity, sapidity, freshness and elegance also thanks to a great temperature range at night. In terms of production, the last harvest 2019 has registered 70,000 bottles and the next one (harvest 2020) has been planned for about 110,000-120,000 bottles.
Frisinō uses to transform their grapes in a small family winery where all processes are well-checked and managed. Indeed they usually harvest manually the grapes in small cases with a unit weight of about 15 kilograms/per case to avoid any break of bunches. The grapes harvested by hand are all selected directly in vine. The fermentation process starts with natural wine yeasts at a controlled temperature of about 16 degrees for white and rosè wines, and 24 degrees for red ones. At the end of fermentation, the wines are decanted and moved to the steel silos or french wood tonneaux for the ageing of wines. After steel or wood aged, wines are ready to bottling , to let them rest in the bottles for some others months.
