Nature of the soil and exposure: The soil is volcanic, permeable, rich in salts and minerals. The vines follow the hill slope, with an exposure to East-West.

Harvest: The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hands. Grapes are picked when the concentration of sugar, acidity, aromas and phenolic compounds reach the perfect level. The grapes are then collected into cases, and with a fast and efficient transportation, are brought immediately to the rooftop of the cellar, where are subjected to another selection before entering the destemmer.

Vinification: The grapes enter the vinification room through natural gravity force and then are smoothly pressed. The extracted juice will ferment in stainless steel tanks with temperature controlled (ca. 15°C) for over 60 days, with daily shuffling of the thin lees. 

Refining: The refining is of 1 year in stainless steel tanks and more than 2 years in the bottle.
