Planting layout and yield

Spurred cordon (2.30 metres x 0.80 metres), yield around 9,000 kg of grapes per hectare, equivalent to 5,700 litres of wine or 63%.

Harvest period

Third ten days of September, start of October.

Fining and fermentation

Destemming by oscillation, following a strict protocol of vinification: after maceration for about 10-12 hours at a controlled temperature of around 8°/10°, a must is obtained by natural draining with the colour of the light pink of an onion skin; then fermented for 14/18 days at a temperature of 18°.
At the end of fermentation, the wine is removed from the lees to avoid malolactic fermentation.
