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 and then sits until February

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
