Generally in the first days of October, a late one allowed by one
skin not very thick but firm; the grapes are harvested strictly by hand.

The must is subjected to clarification, and then fermented on the clean side; decanting from
coarse lees and aging in tanks on the fine ones. The subsequent second fermentation takes place in the bottle, according to the Ancestral method: the aging of the wine is continuous and due to the natural fermentation in the presence of its own yeasts which, once dead, release the substances contained within them to the wine. The bottles remain in refinement for at least 10/12 months and no disgorgement takes place.
