Type of Soil

Yield

5.000 kg of grapes per hectare.

Vinification and Maturation

Fermented in steel vats at a controlled temperature where it is left to macerate for three weeks. After maloclactic fermentation, half the wine is allowed to mature in barriques while the other half is put in large sessile oak barrels for 14 months. This is followed by ageing in the bottle for a year and a half.
