Method: the grapes are ripened directly in the vineyard until they reach roughly 13.50 to 14% vol. of the alcohol potential, after which the harvest is carried out. The clusters (which are cut into small pieces) are placed on racks in a ventilated room. They are then left to dry for about a month, until they reach 20-25% vol. of the alcohol potential. The grapes are then pressed whole and the must is clarified spontaneously (without the use of fining agents), and then the alcoholic fermentation begins using a special strain of selected yeast. The product is made exclusively in particularly favorable vintage years when the withering of the grapes is at its utmost in order to ensure the highest quality level.
