Grapes are picked when the perfect balance between phenolic ripeness, soft fruit tannins and fruit aromas are reached. Modern winemaking techniques are applied to maximize freshness and the expression of fruit aromas typical to these noble varietals. Oaking is used moderately as a finishing/polishing component enabling us to produce varietal true wines.
