They grow at 450 m above sea level on soils of calcareous, loamy and gravelly texture The location and exposure of the slope guarantees optimal solar radiation, which together with the properties of the soil produce a full-bodied wine with a longer shelf life.
The grapes are picked by hand and delivered in small containers. After destemming, the mash is poured into steel barrels by gravity, where fermentation takes place (15-20 days). After malolactic fermentation takes place for 9 months in large wooden barrels. The wine is stored in the bottle for a further 6 months.
