Vinification: selected hand picked grapes are de stemmed into barrels where berries are left in must that starts to spontaneously ferment with the wild indigenous yeast culture.

Only then is the wine separated from the berries and further matured in a barrel for another year. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
