Vinification | A rigorous selection identifies the best bunches that will be stored in “fruttaio” (Drying room).

Alcoholic fermentation runs for more than a month in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (20°C), it’s slow and complicated. A delicate delestage allows the maximum extraction of polyphenols from the skin and seeds.
