They have inherited sensitivity and the art to combine and heighten aromas and flavors, knowing the different soils,wine-stock, climate, age of the vineyards, amount of clusters and ripeness of the grapes, thus obtaining wines with expression and personality.
For the elaboration of wine and its treatment, the winery has a latest generation infrastructure, which allows them to reach an optimal quality of wines.

All the equipment is stainless steel and made in Italy.
The winery has 225 liter barrels of French oak from the forests of Alliers, Vosgues and Troncais, of different makes and up to 4 years old.
The red wines are elaborated in stainless steel tanks, and then left to rest and complete their maturing in oak barrels for a period of 6 to 12 months, according to the wine-stock and the style of wines. Every year 25% of the total number of barrels are replaced for new ones.
