The careful winemaking process begins with a grape bunch selection at perfect ripeness, a hand harvest in small crates and a controlled drop in temperature: all of that, to ensure grapes arrival to the winery in ideal conditions. In the winery, we have the most advanced technologies to ensure the best wine quality and aging potential: production and storage areas as well as tanks are fully temperature controlled, grapes are gently handled by means of advanced machinery and equipment, must and wine are processed under inert gas. In our wine cellar, the selected red wines undergo a lengthy aging process in French oak, Bordeaux-style, barriques. The production is followed directly, with an artisan touch, by Sergio Stefenelli, estate owner and wine designer, with the competent supervision of the enologist Dr. Attilio Pagli.
