Type of Soil

Plant Density5,000 vines per hectare (2,025 per acre). The average age of the vines is 9 years.
Yield75 quintals of grapes per hectare.
Vinification and Maturation
The grapes were specially selected and picked by hand, and then placed in horizontal fermentation tanks, where a delicate maceration on the skins was carried out at 5°C. (41°F.) in anaerobic conditions. Bottling took place after over 6 months’ maturation on the wine’s own natural lees.
