DENSITY FOR HECTARE:
The vineyards are subject to a double thinning of bunches and, during harvest (end of September), the average criterion of choice is, in good vintages, three bunches of five. The grapes thus obtained are further selected in the cellar, where they are processed according to the old tradition. It proceeds to intense extraction in the early stages of fermentation, followed by long quiescent maceration on the marc; the maximum temperature is raised up to 33 °C and maintained at high values until the racking. The ageing in wood lasts 36 months in oak barrels from Slavonia. It follows bottle ageing for 12 months far beyond the mandatory minimum of four months from production regulations.
