Winemaking technique: The healthiest, ripest bunches of picked grapes undergo a unique drying process (Appassimento) that take place, on plateaux, in a well naturally ventilated loft. The grapes lose at least the 35% of their original weight thereby concentrating sugar, aromatic compounds and noble tannins. In January grapes are gently crushed and the fermentation starts at low temperature(13-17 C) Transfer to oak barrels of 700, 1500 and 2000 liters of various origins and composition and age, mostly from Allier forest. The wine remains at least 8 months in bottles before release.

Cold and dry winters. In March the high temperatures move the sprouts well in advance, flowering starts already in the middle of May. Early brings persistent rains, which cools the productivity. Hot and dry summer, with almost no rainfall. The harvest begins in late August and goes on until the end of September.
