VINEYARD: Estate vineyards in Agliano Terme, with excellent exposure. Clay soil rich in calcareous marl. The hand harvest is in mid-October.
Grapes from Certified Sustainable Agriculture.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING: After a careful hand selection in the vineyards, the bunches are immediately de-stemmed and crushed. The must starts its fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The skin-contact lasts for over two weeks. Malolactic fermentation is in winter, where wine aged for over a year. It is bottled unfiltered and remains in our cellars until it reaches a perfect refining.
