Vinification Freshly picked grapes are gently crushed and destemmed then left to ferment in specific stainless steel tanks. Once mashed,they  ferment at a temperature of 25°C. In the same time the grapes undergo a maceration process that leads – through soft replacements – to the extraction of the colour and the unfolding of all the wine’s characteristics.

Ageing The obtained wine is repeatedly decanted and separated from the lees. At this stage we have a natural phenomenon of malo-lactic fermentation, during which the malic acid contained in the wine, turns into lactic acid – therefore gifting it with smoothness and harmony.
