The sustainably grown Pinot Grigio is harvested in the middle of August, at night, to preserve the natural acidity and freshness of the grapes and avoid the extraction of colour from the skin. An extremely soft pressing is also performed to avoid extraction of colour. After natural decanting, the fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16 °C for ten days. The wine is fined on its lees for over five months.
