The best grapes of the season, selected and harvested by hand in September, are put to dry in small wood boxes, plateaux, for three/four months to increase the percentage of aromatic and phenolic compounds.
Pumping over is carried out twice a day, and delastage is carried out once half way through the fermentation process.
They are then pressed and put in stainless steel tanks, where the must undergoes a fermentation for two weeks approximately;
it is then decanted four times without filtering, and finally put in oak barrels for at least 36 months. Bottled after four/five years.
Aging: in French oak barrels of 30hl for at least three years.
Deep ruby red, intense color, with a bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, cherry jam, marasca plum and dried fruits, and a scent of spices, cinnamon and nutmeg.
For its unique flavours, it is considered a “meditation wine”.
