Hi. I'm new here and planning to do my first juice buckets this year. I'm wondering how important MLF is for the varieties I'm considering. I'll probably do probably 2 buckts out of bardonlino, sangiovese, petite sirah or _maybe_ amarone. I'm wondering how necessary MLF is for each of these, since MLF seems expensive, error prone, and time consuming, so I'd rather avoid it if reasonably possible. I love petite sirah but it seems like everyone here does MLF on it. I'm also potentially moving sometime in the next year so ideally i'd get this batch done and bottled within maybe 3 months rather than letting it sit in a carboy for a year. I'm kinda leaning toward skipping the petite sirah and going with the lighter varieties(sangio and badronline) which I assume don't need MLF and can be bottled quicker. Is that a reasonable assumption? Also, any recommendations for california sangio, italian sangio, or italian brunello. Thanks for any advice you can give. For background I'v done a couple kits, country wines, meads and ciders over the years, but I've never tried MLF, or really any reds other than a kit or two.
