In the Vineyard
The grapes grow in the Treviso hills, on clayey soils, where the yield is low.
Before the veraison, the grapes are usually thinned out. This process favors a over-ripening of the grapes in the plant and the achievement of an adequate phenolic maturity.
The polyphenolic charge at harvest is very high and allows a strong aromatic concentration and a simple production process.
In the Winery

Fermentation for about 8 – 10 days in steel at a controlled temperature of 22 – 24° C.
