  • Harvest method: hand picking, in crates, early in the morning.

  • Vinification: we harvest in the very early hours of the morning, the grapes are hand picked and put into small crates, so that the fruit carried to the cellar is still intact and not stressed by the high temperatures of the day. The destemmed and crushed grapes are placed in conical trunk vats where the fermentation starts spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, without controlled temperature. After 5-6 days, when fermentation is complete, the wine is put into used barriques for about a year. Then a further year of ageing in glass.
