The harvest takes place in the first and second week of October when the grapes reach full ripeness, evaluated by measuring the sugar content, total acidity and polyphenolic potential. The grape harvest is manual in respect of their integrity and the organoleptic characteristics that will be expressed in the future wine.
The vinification takes place respecting the tradition by applying the modern principles of red vinification which, after the selection of the grapes, involves the de-stemming and contact of the skins with the must for about 7-10 days at a controlled temperature of 15 ° C for first 2 days and 25-27 ° C for the following days. During this period of alcoholic fermentation and contact of the must with the skins, periodic pumping over of the must is carried out which allows the fractional extraction of the polyphenolic and aromatic substances present on the skins and which will characterize the color and taste of the future wine. At the end of the extraction phase, the wine obtained is separated from the skins with soft pressing and transferred to steel tanks where both the alcoholic fermentation and the subsequent malolactic fermentation ends. After an appropriate storage period of about six months in steel tanks to allow the right maturation of the tannins, the wine is stabilized, filtered and bottled with very low doses of sulphites, much lower than those required by the regulations in force.
