Modernity in the service of tradition

Cutting edge technology and manual techniques work in harmony for a perfect balance of flavors and a rewarding vineyard experience.

After the manual harvest, the grapes arrive at the cellar in boxes of 20kg, where they are carefully chosen and crushed. They are fermented in stainless steel tanks with a capacity for 8 tons of grapes, equipped with a refrigeration system to ferment at controlled temperatures.

The fermentation takes approximately 8 days, with the help of a modern "robot” that mechanically crushes the grapes. After this stage is finished, the wine goes down to the storage room by gravity with no need to be pumped. This room is equipped with stainless steel vats, each having a capacity of 15.000 litres.

From the resulting wine the best batches are selected and are matured for 12 months in French and American oak barrels (500 litres). The cellar where the wine is then left to rest is equipped with a modern refrigeration/ humidification system that guarantee the ideal conditions for the wine’s development.
The best wines are chosen to spend 12 months in 500 litre barrels of French and American oak. Temperature and humidity control in the barrel cellar ensure the best possible conditions for maturation.
