The Doc Cacc’e Mmitte was recognized in 1975; the production area includes the municipalities of Lucera, Troia and Biccari.The vernacular name refers to the traditional method of the vinification. Typical of Southern Italy, the millstones were some places where the grapes were pressed to produce the juice that was stored in large tanks, sometimes carved into the rock. The owners of millstones rented out the equipment for the production. The operations had to be finished throughout the day to leave the equipment to the following user. Therefore a tenant took the must just produced from the tanks of the millstone “Cacc” to bring it into their wine cellars, and a new tenant poured in the tanks “Mmitte” their grapes for crushing.
Our wines are the result of a careful selection of grapes followed by a delicate destemming and pressing, and a classic vinification in red at a controlled temperature. During the fermentation, the must undergoes a reassembly and fulling process that guarantees the desired extraction of the costituents present in the skins. Fermentation occurs spontaneously, that is without the addition of selected yeasts. The product obtained is subsequently aged. The wine obtained is not subject to any clarification and pre-bottling filtration treatment.
