Processing and production The grape, grown accordingly to the biological agricultural methods, is harvested by selecting and eliminating the unripe bunches and grapes. After the pressing and a 7-9 days fermenting process, the wine is poured in oak barrels and repoured in order to eliminate the dregs. The wine, aged for 3 years in oak barrels, is bottled after filtering in the Ai Valloni Estate.
