The grapes for this wine are harvested from vineyards in San Pietro in Cariano in the heart of the Valpolicella region. The grapes are dried slightly on the vines and then destemmed and pressed. Temperature-controlled fermentation is initiated by selected yeasts and includes pump-overs and delestages. The wine ages in 100% Slavonian oak casks and then rests in bottle before release. As a "Superiore" designation, the wine ages for an additional year before release.
