Vinification

Harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are placed in small wooden crates and are then placed on characteristic straw mats in a special room for the drying process where they remain until December when the pressing stage takes place. The “mosto” obtained is then placed into typical casks for about three years where a long and slow fermentation takes place.

A dessert wine.
