Grapes are selected from the most vocated and best exposed soils, in vineyards with lower grape concentration so that nutrients can better concentrate in berries. After late harvest, a longer maceration takes place, around 20 days, to allow a higher concentration of polyphenols, thanks to the extended contact with skins. Vinification in stainless still tanks at controlled temperature (24-26°C) is followed by a 6-month refinement in big barrels.
