Harvest & Vinification
Produced via méthode ancestrale. Aged 12 months on lees (which is much longer than the AOP requirement of two months), which contributes more depth and complexity. No sulfur is added during vinification and bottling. Harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes are pressed directly after picking. 100% whole cluster into bladder press, keeping only the core of the pressed juice. The final wine is always a single vintage every year but is labeled non-vintage.
