Vineyard

The vineyards lie close to deep and fresh ravines which are the result of extraordinary geological formations called Piandaccoli, which have the outstanding advantage of bringing a variable to the microclimate in the area, triggering ascending currents which mitigate high temperatures in summer. 

Soil management aims to provide defense against erosion, aiding conservation and the creation of a physiological balance and the regulation of the vegetative-productive activity of the vineyard, with direct and indirect effects on physiopathologies.

Soils consist of clay and river stones, and the vineyards are under organic conversion and utilize biodynamic methods.

Vinification

The hand-harvested clusters are de-stemmed using a vertical vibrating system, which leaves behind dry and underripe grapes. Gentle pumping over occurs in steel tanks and a Bucher press compresses the marc while preventing the crushing of the grapes to minimize the releasing of tannins. After 15 months in steel tanks, the wine is further aged in barrels for 6 months.
