Description : the grapes are harvested around the last third of September and placed in small crates to dry for about 5 weeks in an old slab. Once the right degree of dryness is reached, we proceed with the destemming and it is left to ferment in wooden barrels with a capacity of 5 hl for about 20 -40 days depending on the year. Then it is separated from the pomace and left to settle for a few weeks and then refined for 18-24 months in suitable wooden barrels of 2.25 hl capacity.
