FARMING AND PRODUCTION: Low grown and Guyot pruning system; The best shoots are selected during the pruning, and if necessary the bunches are thinned out during the veraison phase. These activities are done by hand; they are necessary to aerate and expose the bunches to the sun, to prevent the grapes from developing diseases caused by rain and humidity. The vineyards are completely free from chemical processing with fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides, except from copper and sulphur. The vineyard gets its nourishment from the organic matter from the green manuring of spring flowers, wild grass, and vine shoots from the pruning from the previous winter.
HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: Strictly done by hand, normally in the second decade of September, employing plastic crates. The grapes are quickly crushed and de-stemmed automatically. The fermentation starts spontaneously with the aid of native yeasts without exposing the must to controlled temperatures. After a time spanning from 10 to 15 days to trigger the alcoholic fermentation, soft pressing ensures racking. The obtained must is put into steel tanks for a period of 4 to 8 months to age. Afterwards the ageing process continues inside the bottle.
FRAGRANCE: Dense bouquet of wild berries, blackberry and plum, with subtal floral notes (red rose) and plant (leaf tea), enhanced by memories of licorice, graphite, and wild.
TASTE: Elegant, austere, supported by smooth tannins and a vibrant vein-mineral acid. Final ending in perfect correspondence with the smell.
FEATURES: Bottles aged in natural stone cave.
