The soils are heavily influenced by lime, sand and clay, hot temperatures during the day and the simultaneously cooling sea breeze from the Mediterranean, help to convince the resulting wine with powerful body, rich, intense fruit and elegance.The
grapes from the different vineyard parcels are vinified separately. Only at the end of the process are they harmoniously coordinated with each other. The fermentation takes about six days at a controlled temperature, a further 15 days of maceration is required before all other flavours, colours and tannins pass into the mash and give the wine its variety of aromas.
