|Composition of the land
||Alberese and galestro skeleton mainly clayey rich in iron, sulfur and quartz.

Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine will still remain in contact with the skins for a period of about 20-25 days before being decanted into cement tanks to facilitate the start-up and malolactic fermentation.
