The harvest is conducted manually by gather the grapes in small boxes so that each bunch arrives at the winery in good condition. Every step is undertaken with great care. Fourteen months ageing in casks made from French and American oak followed by a period of at least twenty four months were necessary in order to obtain this fine wine, full of nuances and waiting the most discerning palates.
