Position and characteristics of the vineyards: this wine is born in the best wine-growing area of the Buje region, Contarini-Brazzania, where a low yield per hectare allows to achieve the properties of top wines. The vineyards are laid out like an amphitheater and ideally use the local climate and the mineral soil of the white land.
Vinification and maturation: alcoholic fermentation begins at a temperature of 25-28 ° C, 15 to 20 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation take place in small oak barrels for 18 months, which favors the pairing of rich and noble aromas of wood and grapes. This is followed by blending and aging the wine in a large barrel for one year, after which it is rounded and matured in the bottle for the next 6 months.
