100% Montepulciano. Prologo was De Fermo's first wine, hence the "prologue" moniker, in the 2010 vintage. It is sourced from the estate's 11 hectares of certified-biodynamic vines. They are hand-harvested and the bunches destemmed, crushed and fermented spontaneously with native yeasts and no temperature control in concrete tank. Maceration last 2-3 weeks, while the fermentation goes on for a leisurely month or two.
The wine is aged in large oak botti for up to a year and half and is bottled without fining or filtering or additional sulfur (minimal amounts are used at racking only).
