All Vinification methods are subordinate to the goal to preserve the fruit taste of the grapes in the purest possible form and to produce terroir-related wines. These include gentle long pressing at low pressure, primary settling by natural sedimentation and a slow but not too cool fermentation, the renunciation of fining and treatment of young wines and a one-time filtration.
