After destemming and crushing, alcoholic fermentation takes place with the addition of selected yeasts keeping the temperature constant at around 25°. During maceration, pumping over is done at regular intervals thus favouring the contact of the skins with the must to increase the extraction of tannins, anthocyanins and the characteristic aromas of Dolcetto. The drawing off follows to separate the wine from the skins.
Maturation in stainless steel vats and a short period in the bottle.
Colour: ruby red that takes on violet reflections over time;
Bouquet: fruity with strong floral notes;

Continuity is in fact the keyword that best reflects the significance of the brand; in fact, this is graphically depicted with 3 consecutive points that indicate the continuation of the family tradition.
