Wine making: Collection of grapes, completely handmade, generally starts after the first week of October for Sangiovese, and some days before for Merlot. The harvest is put in small boxes containing about 15 Kg of grapes each. Grapes arrive at the cellar on the terrace above the wine making zone; it is introduced in the stemmer-crasher machine, stemmed then pressed, and by the only gravity force it gets into glassified concrete and steel basins situated in the cellar itself. In these basins fermentation starts at controlled temperature of grapes (not higher than 28 – 30C), in touch with peels for about 10 days.

Refining: after peels maceration, all wine is decanted in French oak barriques by 225 lt, where malolactic fermentation happens and where wine remains for about 14 months on the whole. In this period decantating is made.
