Originating from the Marche region of Italy, this wine is from the privately owned vineyards in the towns of Maiolati Spontini, Montecarotto, Poggio S. Macello, and Rosora which are all located at an altitude of between 180-360 metres above sea level. The vineyard has a medium soil intensity and the vines are cordon trained and spur pruned. The grapes for this bottle are harvested manually at the end of September to the 10th October with a small yield of 110q/ha. The de-stemmed grapes go through a soft pressing to obtain a must rich of natural varietal aromas concentrated in the outer part of the grape berry. They are then subjected to a temperature-controlled fermentation in steel tanks before being bottled.
