Doppio Passo DOPPIO PASSO is a tribute to Carlo and Maria Botter who, together, founded our company in 1928, building it STEP by STEP, day after day, working together to achieve a shared goal. Two different but complementary personalities. In Puglia, in our Masseria Doppio Passo, as well as with all our partners, we work side by side, managing and controlling the entire production chain from the vineyards to the bottle. Not only, DOPPIO PASSO in the game of football, National Sport of the Bel Paese, is the common way to describe a style of play, spectacular exciting and engaging, linked to moments of aggregation where enthusiasm grows from action to action. This is how two different meanings come together and become complementary in the expression and representation of our wines: tasting a glass of DOPPIO PASSO, sip after sip, you can appreciate the generous and soft characteristics typical of the terroir of the places of origin but also the eccentric and persuasive personality of each wine.

The first part of the grapes are harvested, destemmed and vinified with 7/8 days of maceration in order to extract colour and structure. The alcoholic and
malolactic fermentation are made in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature 25/27 °C. The second part of the grapes is left on vineyards for about 10 days in order to
have a late harvest; these grapes follow the traditional red vinification.
