In September, the best grapes of the season are selected and harvested by hand.
They are then placed to dry in small wooden boxes for three/four months so that the percentage of aromatic and phenolic compounds increases.
Pumping over is carried out twice a day, and delastage is carried out once halfway through the fermentation process.
They are then pressed and put in stainless steel tanks, where the must undergoes a fermentation for approximately two weeks.
Following this they are then decanted four times without filtering, and finally put in oak barrels for a minimum of 36 months.
They are aged in French oak barrels of 30hl for at least three years and bottled after four/five years.

This is a deep ruby red wine with an intense color.
It is filled with a bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, cherry jam, marasca plum, dried fruits, and a scent of spices namely cinnamon and nutmeg.
For its unique flavors, it is considered a “meditation wine”.
