- Other Information:The Production of the “Cloe’” starts in the second half of September, with the harvest of the first optimally ripe grapes. The grapes are taken off the stem and pressed. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks, using only the indigenous yeasts present in the skins of the grapes.This process lasts for approximately ten or more days, depending on the desired color intensity of the wine. The “Cloe’” pairs very well with raw fish appetizers and vegetables. It is also well matched with pasta, risotto, fish and white meat dishes
