The grapes used to produce this wine are selected from young vineyards located in Prapò, Cerretta and Lazzarito. The first fermentation, being a classic one, lasts for about 20 days with the skins. At the end the wine rests in old 700 liters' tonneaux for about two years. The wine is then bottle-aged for 15-18 months before being offered for sale. During the last 24 months, the wine rests in different kinds of wood.
