The best grapes of the season, selected & harvested by hand in September, are put to dry in small wood boxes, for three to four months to increase the percentage of aromatic and phenolic compounds. Pumping over is carried out twice a day, & delastage is carried out once half way through the fermentation process. They are then pressed, put in stainless steel tanks, where the must undergoes a fermentation for two weeks approximately; it is then decanted four times without filtering; finally put in oak barrels for at least 36 months. Bottled after four/five years. Aging: in French oak barrels of 30hl for at least three years. Deep ruby red, intense color, with ripe red & black fruit bouquet, cherry jam, marasca plum & dried fruits, scent of spices, cinnamon & nutmeg. For its unique flavours it is considered a “meditation wine”.
