Wine Making:
The grape selection in our Aglianico and Petit Verdot vineyards allows us to obtain this extremely fine and unique proprietary red wine, the result of very attentive handpicking and superb oenology. The adjacent estate cellar, maximum 500 meters away from any picking point, is an important factor in determining the overall quality of this wine, as very little time runs between the bunch being cut from its vine, very early in the morning, and being softly pressed, without any risk of undesired pre-fermentation or of berries getting broken during transportation. Harvest: Petit Verdot, mid-September Aglianico, late-September Vinification: Maceration on the skins Fermentation: In steel tanks for approximately 20 days Aging: In small, mildly toasted, Allier and Never barriques, for 15-16 months.
