Grapes were fermented in open fiberglass tanks by indigenous yeast with 24 days of skin contact, malolactic was made in two different steps, before and after the end of the year. We added so2 during the fining racking and before the bottling only if it is necessary .

Bruna and her ten donkeys work with kids, Luigi volunteers with associations in San Marzano Oliveto, Luca is a craft brewer and his brother Matteo owns a bar - "Grappolo contro Luppolo" ("Grapes vs Hops").
