The harvesting by hand happens between the second ten days and the end of August.
Once the grapes have been pressed they undergo cold maceration for some hours to accomplish the extraction of the aromas from the skins. After this process the skins are separated from the free-run juice, the alcoholic fermentation starts, this takes place in 500 litre oak barrels at a controlled temperature for almost a month. It remains in the same barrels, on its lees, for another 8 months during which batonnage is carried out with a decreasing frequency until bottling. It undergoes further ageing of at least one year in the bottle before consumption. …“an elegant nose opens with intense mineral sensations that recall flint in the sun, followed by citrus notes, lily of the valley and hawthorn and a hint of white plum.
