Vinification: the whole bunches of grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks, alternating layers of 50% crushed-destemmed must and 50% whole bunches of grapes, as picked from the vine, at a controlled temperature (28° C), for an average of 10-12 days.
Ageing: the wine ages in wood for at least four months and then in the bottle for at least one or two months. The wine peaks immediately and remains constant for at least three to four years after harvest, varying considerably from vintage to vintage.
Ideal with flavoursome pasta dishes, meats and medium-mature cheeses.
