of Pavia, 130 metres above sea level. The grapes are harvested in the final 10
days of September and taken immediately to the vinification cellar, where the
de-stemming and crushing is performed. The transfer of the crushed grapes into
conical trunk vats in oak wood is not temperate controlled. The wine is then
drawn off, separated from the marc, and transferred to oak barrels at a
controlled temperature where the malolactic fermentation takes place. Here the
vinification is slow and uses the techniques of delestage and batonage. The
wine is decanted into steel tanks and the topping is carried out until it is
left to mature and stabilize for about 4 months. The wine is then transferred
to the bottling cellar where it is clarified and filtered and introduced into
the bottling line. The bottles are then left to mature for a few months.
