Climate:
The mountain air currents circulating in this area actually reduce the summer evening temperatures and keep the soil warm in winter.

Underground:
The moderately fertile soil is characterized by a rich mineral composition.

Vinification:
The vinification starts immediately after harvest. The processes of vinification takes place in special inox tanks and wooden vats. The pneumatic punch down system of the wooden vats enables exceptional color extraction with extremely fine tannins, and preservation of all the aromatic compounds. The red wines are aged in barriques, where they complete their malolactic fermentation process. Shortly after the homogenization, the wines are bottled and then aged for some extra time in the winery cellar before they are sent out to the world. The aging process runs under strictly controlled temperature and humidity conditions. This wine has aged 24 months in new American and French oak barriques.
