The land is clay and chalky with a good presence of rock fragments. The style of the grassy plant is “Double Veronese Pergola”.
We carry out the harvest between September and October, selecting and picking the grapes only by hand. The bunches of grapes are placed in crates, also known as “Ploto”, destined to be dried in the fruit sheds.
During the winemaking we carry out a destalking and pressing of the dried grapes and we empty the crates in which the grapes have been resting one by one.
