The vines are organic, they are grown using sustainable methods and have been
awarded the Terra Vitis accreditation. The work undertaken in the vineyard is crucial.
A precise and meticulous selection of the plots most suitable for producing this type
of wine is undertaken, as it is vinified without the addition of sulphur or other
additives. 90% of the final result depends on this painstaking work, as the vines must
be in perfect health, with strong, fresh, dense foliage and selecting grapes which
have reached optimal maturity. The window for successful harvesting of the fruit is
very narrow, the balance between acidity and sweetness and the maturity of the
tannins are critical for this type of wine.
The vinification process is very complex as this wine is vinified without the use of
sulphur or other additives. The grapes were pressed immediately, with cold must
settling in order to encourage the oxide compounds in the must to stabilise naturally.
Alcoholic fermentation was very short and took place in a controlled environment
with temperatures restricted to 18°C. The wine was purified by racking, before
malolactic fermentation and a further racking phase took place at controlled
temperatures. The wine was bottled relatively early, to preserve its full aromatic

elegance, a lightness of touch and a magnificent balance of flavour.
