Vinification

Picked by hand into small 20kg boxes in the first 10 days of October. The traditional-style vinification lasting 30 /40 days takes place in concrete tanks without the addition of yeasts, with pumping of the must over the floating cap 2/3 times a day for the first 15 days. During the maceration that follows on the skins for a further 15-20 days, in keeping with an ancient practice wooden staves are used to completely submerge the cap of skins into the new wine which is still undergoing fermentation.

Aging

In large wooden vats and casks holding 25 and 50 hectoliters for 18-24 months, in pursuit of the finesse and elegance demanded of Barolo, followed by a further stay in concrete for 6-12 months. The wine is then matured in the bottle for at least 6-12 months prior to its release.
