The vineyard is situated across 20 hectares, with the typical Pergola Veronese and Guyot system. The selected bunches are the sparsest and best exposed ones. The careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and the strict management of the drying process are of extreme importance for this wine. The grapes are hand-harvested during the second half of September. After approximately 120 days of appassimento (drying out of the grapes placed in crates), vinification takes place. During fermentation, the wine is always in contact with the grape skins. It is pumped over twice a day with a delestage half way through fermentation, favouring colour extraction. Here, all the noble components held in the skins are transferred to the wine. Ageing occurs for 1 year in small barrique and 2 years in large 25hl oak barrels.

The clean aromas of red cherry and berries are enhanced by a floral touch. Initially sweet with a nice glycerine sensation in the mouth, it follows a slightly bitter note with a noticeable tannic bite on the lively flavours of red fruits. Classically dry finishes with a hint of heat derived from the significant alcoholic content.
