Vinification: The grapes are left to dry until early December, after the drying they’re carefully selected at the sorting table where not perfectly intact or affected by mold grapes are eliminated . After a delicate de-stemming the grapes are lightly pressed sent to stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place in 18 days of maceration
of the skins in the must at the temperature of 25 ° C . After pressing the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels in which the aging continues for 18 months. In the end the wine is aged in the bottle for another 10 months before its release.
