Vinification

To maintain the integrity and enhance the characteristics of the wine, all the operations of transforming grapes are within the area of production: the grapes are quickly transported to the winery and soft pressed to extract from the peel and the outer area of the grape only the most noble and aromatic fractions. The must is fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then racked into stainless steel tanks or cement tanks to preserve the fresh and fragrant typical aromas. The long stay on the yeast makes this long-lived wine, able to evolve after uncorking and still in the glass.
