The extremely low yield of grapes per hectare,
the harvesting of the fruit when it is fully ripe and fermentation and refinement in small oak barrels enable this wine to acquire a powerful and elegant structure. Contact with wood and an extended stay in the bottle enrich its elegant and persistent aromatic vein. It is a wine that enjoys great longevity.
