In the vineyard

- H.V.E Certificate : High Environmental and Agricultural good practices acknowledgment.
- Severe pruning favouring aeration to provide an homogeneous repartition of grapes, disbudding and bud splitting. Thinning out the leaves on both sides. Cleaning up.
- Integral soil work by grass growing , to encourage the vine's roots to grow deeper in order to obtain the best expression of thisTerroir.


During vinification time, extraction is done as gently as possible.
- Cold pre-ferment maceration ( 0°C) during 10 days.
- Exclusive use of release by gravity. Juice is re-sent by sprinkling on to the grappa which prevents it from destructure.
- No pumping over.
- Long post-ferment maceration (28°C) during 20 days in average to refine the tannins.
