the wine-making technique is of traditional type, based on 3 daily topups during the first week and on a daily top-up during the week that follows. The fermentation temperature is set at 22° C during the first week of fermentation and at 28° C during the second week. Once the phase of alcoholic fermentation is completed, the grape skins are racked and softly pressed. The best conditions for the malolactic fermentation are created and this phase is concluded with customary decanting. The bottling process starts in the month of June of the year following the harvest
storage in a cool dry cellar is recommended, as the aging of this important wine may exceed 3-4 years.

a very pleasant, warm and enveloping mouth entry followed by a slight tannic note continued by a very good persistence, leaving a dry mouth. Good correspondence between scent and aftertaste.
