Wine farming Pruning is done by double cordone speronato (cords and support) with environmentally friendly cultivation; complete cover crop; shoot thinning, bud selection and leaf and lateral shoot removal at the invaiatura - the beginning stage of maturation.
Harvest Grapes are selected by hand and placed carefully in small boxes then brought, within one and a half hours, to the cellar.
Vinification The most suitable grapes are then selected in the cellar on the selection table where after they undergo a soft picking-pressing process before the delestage: 15 days of temperature-controlled skin fermentation in steel vats.
Ageing The ageing is done in 500litre oak barrels, (50% new) for a period ranging from 14 to 20 months.
