IN VIGNA: In the last 30 years the leaf surface has been considerably increased with respect to the quantity of bunches, so as to always obtain the highest quality grapes.
DIRECTIONS: The selection of the grapes takes place mainly in the vineyard during the whole phase of setting, ripening and maturation. 4/5 thinning are done manually in order to reduce the production per ha and make the bunches all the same, with a homogeneous maturation.
HARVEST: Harvesting is done manually using small crates so as not to compress and do not have cracks in grapes already in the vineyard.
VINIFICATION: The fermentation takes place in hat emerged in steel tanks and runs out in 14/15 days. This process takes place using temperature control and oxygenation techniques.
All the operations carried out after the alcoholic fermentation are made by protecting the wine from contact with oxygen using nitrogen. In this way there is a greater preservation of the aromas of wine and coloring substances.
AGING: after malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels with a capacity of 500 liters (60% new, 40% second passage). The last two months assembly takes place in steel tanks until the next bottling.
