They show different and composite morphological characteristics, with the presence of calcareous areas rich in galestro, as well as stones and partially clayey. The production plants are located at an average altitude between 80 and 400 meters above sea level, with West/South-West exposure.


After an autumn with mild temperatures and frequent rainfall, the winter was quite dry and with temperatures often above the seasonal norm. Spring arrived a little early and, from mid-March, the beautiful sunny days and the significant increase in temperatures anticipated the enlargement of the buds. However, in April the climate changed again with a substantial drop in temperatures and the return of the rains. The entire month of April was very rainy, normalizing the soil water reserve. The continuation of spring was unusual with rains and cold temperatures also conditioned by the north winds. From the end of May the weather conditions improved and from June summer arrived with sunny days, normal temperatures and excellent ventilation (especially at night).

The end of June recorded intense temperatures but fortunately the sultry heat lasted only for a short time, and the rest of the summer stabilized at temperatures well within the seasonal average. July and August were hot but always with normal temperatures, without any excesses, except for the last week of July where the sultry heat lasted for about a week. Immediately after mid-August there were rains which brought refreshment and helped to normalize the vitality of the plants.


The harvest, carried out entirely by hand, began in the second week of September with the Cabernet Franc grapes and then continued with the Cabernet Sauvignon, starting first from the vineyards located at lower altitudes, until ending in the first ten days of October, in those of the hills over 300 meters above sea level.


Selection of the grapes through a sorting table, soft pressing and delicate destemming of the grapes using machinery suitable for not breaking the integrity of the berries. The alcoholic fermentations (completely spontaneous and without the addition of external yeasts) ended in mid-October and took place regularly and at maximum temperatures of 26-27 °C. The malolactic fermentations carried out in steel were completed regularly at the end of November thanks to the reduced external temperatures. In early December, the wine was placed in barriques from the first ten days of December 2019.


At the end of the malolactic fermentation and after a rotation of decanting to ensure cleanliness, the wine begins the period of aging in French oak barriques for a period ranging from 20 to 25 months. The duration of the refinement is technically decided on the basis of the seasonal trend of the vintage.
