Winery Notes:
• A single vineyard bottling

• Grapes are pressed immediately after harvest

• After 3-4 days of maceration, primary fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts

• Wine is racked onto the lees of the Amarone which starts a second alcoholic fermentation (this process is called ripasso)

• After this fermentation, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak barrels for seven years
