Small bush vines called "alberello" which are nonirrigated and low yielding. 70 to 90 year old vines. Hand harvested. 8 tons per hectare yields.
Sandy soil with a great drainage.
The Primitivo grapes were dried for five weeks. On arrival at the cellars, the grapes were pressed, destemmed and cooled to 18°C and the must was allowed to ferment with natural yeast at its own pace. After racking in mid-November, the wine remained in an underground cement tank where the temperature did not exceed 10°C.
After fermentation the wine was aged for 6 months in cement/stainless stell. After bottling we let the wine rest for at least 4 months. No wood is used.
