Production technique

The production of this wine implies a high quality of the transformed grape given by a very careful biodynamic cultivation of the vines. Our long- standing experience has led us to select the eldest vineyard, called Alborina, over the more than 18 hectares, perfect for the achievement of the final result. The grape, collected in crates is pressed to obtain a must that is initially cleaned and then fermented. With an alcoholic content of 5% by vol. part of this partially fermented must is transferred to barriques, where all the sugars are extracted. After slow static decantation and distancing of the largest lees, can the ageing process start and continue for several months. The merging of this part with the one in the steel results in a zippy but gracefully contoured, refreshing wine. This wine is 100% HANDMADE.
