HARVEST PERIOD & VINIFICATION
The clusters were left to naturally dry on the vine until mid-November or as long as the weather permitted; they were then placed on reed mats to complete the natural drying process. At the end of December, the berries were removed by hand and pressed, and the must given a slow fermentation.
After fermentation, the wine rested in barriques for 48 months, followed by lengthy bottle-ageing.
