Additional info:

All the spes are followed with maximum attention to details:

Harvesting system: hand harvested grapes and transport to the cellar in small boxes.   
Vinification: soft stemming and pressing; fermentation by selected yeast with temperature control in stainless steel vats and rémontages and délestages.
Maturation: first in stainless steel vats, then in medium toasted oak barrels and terracotta amphora . The wine is bottled avoiding strict filtration methods, which do impart translucency and clarity to a wine, but inevitably also destabilize its structure.

During the ageing in bottle, any sediment, dued to the crystallization of potassium salts - naturally occurred in grapes - should be considered the result of a normal evolution of a wine with a powerful structure and with a high concentration, intensified by the ageing in terracotta.
