The grapes are harvested by hand. Fermentation takes place for 6-7 days followed by a resting period of approximately four months. Select hand-picked grapes are carefully air dried on wooden racks for 100 days. Traditional pressing and fermentation are followed by a minimum of 3 years in aged Slavonian oak casks.
