Wine Making

VINIFICATION: Traditional vinification with a continuing maceration of  grape skin lasting 7,8 days according to the vintage and the racking-off, with an evident intensity of colors and scents. When the grape-harvest ends, the starting ageing of wine occurs partly (60%) in steel containers and  the remaining part (40%) in small valuable oak barrels for about 12 months. Then the wine blending occurs and after a period of rest,  the product is bottled and put on the market after an ageing  in bottle of 6 months.
