VINEYARD: Steep sea-facing vineyard, lying on granite soil, covered by a thin layer of reddish, iron-rich clay. 2 Ha planted in 1962 and 1 replanted in 2002. 4.500 plants per Ha. 100% Pigato.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are handpicked at the end of September, destemmed and crushed into a pneumatic press. The resulting must ferments in stainless steel vats with ambient yeasts. A short maceration on the skins under vacuum is carried out to extract maximum aromatic complexity.

|The grapes are hand-picked during the last ten days of September, destemmed and crushed into a pneumatic press. The resulting must is fermented in stainless steel vats with ambient yeasts. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine undergoes a short maceration on the skins for a few hours to extract maximum aromatic complexity from the grapes (the process is done under vacuum to avoid the least risk of oxidation or browning of the colour). The wine is then racked into stainless steel tanks where it matures on the lees until the end of March, when it’s bottled unfined and unfiltered.|
