The vines are planted on the Hills of Pressano and Storni with western exposure at an average altitude of 300-350. The vineyards vary from plantings on the highest slopes, often terraced with stone walls with shallow nutrient rich soils. To grapes grown on the Werfen Vineyard on red siltstone, loamy clayey soil; deep, well drained with an excellent capacity for water retention but less rich in nutrients. All grapes are hand-picked early October before careful selection takes place. Grapes from different vineyards are harvested and vinified together using traditional maceration. Light pumping over and delicate pumping down are used as extraction techniques. Some of the juice is matured in small French oak barrels and the rest in larger wooden barrels. Bottling of the wine varies but is at least 30 months after harvest and spends another 6 months in bottle before release.
