Production Area: Old vineyards selected in the municipalities of Orsogna, Filleto and Guardiagrele. The soils are made up textured lands and generally end with a limestone substrate and rocky outcrops sparse. The thermal values characterize a rather warm texture, with little annual rainfall and very high temperature ranges; ideal conditions that have a positive influence on the quality of the grapes.

Wine-making Process: After careful selection, the grapes are de-stemmed, then, very gently, crushed, causing as little damage as possible to the skins. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-15 days at a temperature ranging between 25 and 28 °C.

Refinement: Part of the wine is aged in oak barriques, and the other part in steel tanks for at least four months.
