|Composition of the land
||Soil is calcareous basaltic.
||"Pergola Veronese" on old plants and Guyot on the new one.
||The grapes are carefully selected at the time of harvest and are brought into a conservation room and immediately put into wooden boxes and settled on rush matting. It is essential that the grapes are positioned correctly so that the passerillage raisining can take place in a complete and natural way. The first sign of “noble rot” appears at the end of November – beginning of December and develops mostly in the month of January.
||At the end of January pressing begins and after about 20 days of maceration, the alcoholic fermentation begins through indigenous yeasts. Fermentation follows and lasts for 45 days.
||Afterwards it is put into medium - small Slavonian oak barrels, where it matures for seven years.
