All processes in the vineyard are strictly manual, a careful selection allows only the best bunches to reach the winery. Alcoholic fermentation, according to tradition, takes place spontaneously in large cement tanks for at least 20 days before malolactic fermentation in tonneau, where the wine will age for another 40 months.
