Training method

Espalier – spurred cordon with a plant spacing of 2.00 mt. x 0.83 equal to 5,600 plants per hectare; yield per plant approximately 2.5 kg,
corresponding to 13,000/14,000 kg of grapes per hectare.

Harvest

Harvesting is performed when the grapes are perfectly ripe around mid-October and is performed mechanically.

Vinification

Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats in a temperature-controlled environment, favouring a prolonged contact of skins with the must. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the month of November right after the alcoholic fermentation. Ageing takes places first in stainless – steel tanks, then for at least three months in cement vats and finally for at least another three months in the bottle.
