We collect only the bunch with grapes not too close together, to allow air to circulate through for a better drying process.
Bunches are harvested by hand, directly in the vineyard, during the month of September, and placed to dry until January at controlled humidity and temperature on flat, wooden trellises.
This process is called "Appassimento"
