Starting in the vineyard, intense care is devoted to the plants. The grass is mowed and other unwanted plants which sprout up around the grapevines are weeded out. Ruined grape bunches are eliminated in August and during the September harvest. The grapes are picked by hand using “bigonce,” a type of traditional basket. Skins and stems are fermented in open oak vats for 15 days. The skins are pressed manually and the liquid transferred without pumps. Aged in small Italian oak barels. Alcohol: 13.0% Harvest: mid-September to end of September
