Located in the Mezzane Valley in the Valpolicella zone of the Veneto, Italy, the grapes are grown on terraced hillside vineyards in calcareous, alkaline soil.
Grapes are carefully selected and then transferred to drying lofts for about three months. The grapes will lose 30% of their weight in the drying process, thereby concentrating the essential compounds in the grape. Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for 20- 30 days of maceration and fermentation. Once the wine has been racked off its gross lees, it is then transferred to barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. Over 25 months, the wine goes through regular rackings and topping up of the barrels until blending.
