Our Riserva has a contains of sulfites of 40-50 mg per litre which can be considered a natural quantity of so2, infact this is the quantity produced by the fermentation, so what we do is just to add the enough quantity to keep the initial quantity of sulfites. Unfortunately current rules don’t permit to declaire on the label the quantity of so2 and this is totally irresponsible.
