Vinification: the grapes are harvested in the first couple of weeks of October and undergo soft crushing. They are then delicately pressed and the juice is fined statically, without the use of fining agents. The must ferments for 15 to 20 days at 18-20°C, to develop and fully maintain the typical notes of the variety.
Aging: upon completion of fermentation, the wine is transferred to steel tanks and left at a low temperature, never above 15-16°C. The wine is kept regularly in motion to facilitate maturing on fine lees, until the end of winter. It is bottled at the beginning of spring
