The grapes, collected together, are subjected to cryomaceration at 4 °C for about 36 hours and then are gently pressed. The must thus obtained is cold decanted statically and then added with a previously (3-4 days before) prepared fermentation base with the best selected grapes of the same vine. It is then subjected to a slow fermentation and aging sur lies at a controlled temperature with frequent bâtonnage in stainless steel silos. We will wait for the month of March for bottling. Only after a last period of rest and refinement in bottle (30 days) our wine will undergo the consumer's judgment.
