Production methods:
This wine is  produced only in very rare and special vintages. The grapes are  lovingly gathered after a period of withering on the vine. The must is fermented at a controlled temperature (24/26 ° C), while the wine is stored in underground glazed containers where it mellow and refines. Ageing is completed in oak barrels 8 months, in order to highlight the intrinsic characteristics of the grape. As wine mellows  it is stabilized and bottled at a low temperature, not to alter its natural characteristics.
