The cellar


Being a recent construction (1996), Scopone’s Cellars have been designed with the aim of integrating at its best the most modern winemaking technologies and the wisdom and experience of the centuries-old Tuscan wine-producing tradition.

Provided with vanguard technologies, chosen by analyzing the best European and international benchmarks, the Cellar is certainly a model among small- and medium-size cellars in Montalcino.

Although the settings are either interred or semi-interred, in order to maintain the temperature stable even in adverse meteorological conditions, the structure is provided with vanguard stabilizing systems.

New equipments, conceived for the future’s oenology, such as the pumps, the machine which remove the stems or the pneumatic press, all rigorously made out of stainless steel, harmonize with elements belonging to the best world-wide wine-making traditions, like the French oak barriques, all coming from the best French “tonneleries”, and the Slavonia oak barrels either new or old .

The vinification process takes place in cone shaped stainless-steel vats, each one with its own control panel guaranteeing the temperature control, and individual pumps to autonomously manage the first part of the winemaking process (remontage).

This innovative winemaking system allows the Azienda Agricola Scopone’s Cellar to obtain wines rich of color, aromas, perfume, and highly equilibrated.
