Strain selected on the hills of Siena in Tuscany for the production of red wines with great structure and a high alcohol level.
PREMIUM® SUPERTUSCAN is a strain recommended for the production of excellent, full-bodied red wines destined for malolactic fermentation, where they will come to their full potential during a long maturation.
Its specific characteristics make it ideal for the fermentation of must that will generate harmonious wines of high structure and alcohol level.
Experiments conducted in collaboration with the University of Verona on the yeast-bacterium synergy have shown it to be very compatible with Amar04®. A primary fermentation with PREMIUM® SUPERTUSCAN creates the optimal basis for the full expression of the bacterium in the execution of a clean and organoleptically desirable malolactic fermentation.
The PREMIUM® SUPERTUSCAN strain is part of the Vason collection, a research project to exploit native yeasts able to draw out the characteristics of individual grape varieties.
Its isolation, selection, and tests on desiccation and fermentation are coordinated by the Research and Development department of Enologica Vason.
