Grape Varieties: Made from Falanghina and Chardonnay grapes, selected and harvested by hand as soon as they are ripe.
Winemaking Technique: Grapes are soft crushed and the skins removed at once; the clear must is fermented at a controlled temperature, with the addition of selected yeasts. The resulting wine is filtred to arrest secondary fermentation.
Bottle fermentation: Usually begins in the February or March following the grape harvest to finish in October or November.
