THE MAKING OF THE WINE
Our wines are made naturally with great respect for the Terroir. Our attentive supervision allows for complete control over the making and aging of the wine. We insist that our wines be made with the greatest respect for the dignified authenticity of our land. The manual wine harvest begins with the successive sorting of the grapes by hand. Afterwards they are brought to the cellar in shallow cases. The grapes are destemmed before wine making begins and are placed into barrels and vats through the use of gravity.
THE GROWING OF THE WINE
Three types of soil exist in the Terroir, each with rounded pebbles (sedimentary and calcareous clay, sandy clay and ancient terraces). The subsoil is composed of hard, fractured limestone with diagonal layers which allow a constant hygrometry.
The North/Northwest exposure is perfect for the maintenance of cool temperatures that heighten the aromas and give an elegant character with a good acetic balance. It also allows for a shorter period of sugar maturity which benefits the phenolic maturity obtaining a considerable tannic structure. Small yields preserve the quality of the grapes and permit the extraction of the quintessential qualities of the Terroir.
