Soil Characteristics

With Eocene origins, rich in clay, which ensures a perfect drainage.

Vinification

In 80-hectoliter stain-less steel tanks, truncated-cone shaped, at controlled temperature, which never exceeds 32C. First fermentation lasted 15 days. Thanks to the particular technical characteristics of these tanks, which also have a completely removable lid, the punch-down system is used, instead of the pump-over procedure, in order to achieve a better and gentler extraction, avoiding the use of pumps.

Aging

16 months in total, 12 of which in 500-liter French oak tonneaux.

Bottle-aging

Minimum 4 months of bottle aging before its release (end of January 2005). The wine was bottled in September 2004.
