Production 

The grapes are delivered to the cellar as soon as possible after cutting and are then subjected to a visual inspection to select the best bunches. 

The de-stemming and crushing of the grapes are the next steps. 

The vinification in steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 50 hl will follow and at the same time a fundamental phase to give color to the must, called “reassembly” and subsequent délestage is done. 

After completing the vinification the resulted wine is aged for a period of 18-20 months in precious oak barrels followed by maturation in the bottle for at least 3-4 months in our cellars.
