Winemaking: Hand harvest in September and the beginning of October onto the wooden plateau.

When the wine arrives at 14% vol, it is drained thus remaining with a high sugar residual. Matures in French oak barrels for at least 18 months, then rests into stainless steel.

Grapes: Corvina e Corvinone, Rondinella, Merlot
