The grapes are harvested perfectly whole and slightly overripe. The maceration for about 7 days takes place at very low temperatures, followed by fermentation at about 15-17 °. In this way the varietal aromas and the colour become intense and deep. The refinement is in tonneaux, new and old (second and third passage), and the wine reposes for 18-24 months, and after for 3-4 months in bottle, before selling it.
