The Chardonnay vines grow in vineyards in the Valle dei Laghi and hills around Trento, with yields of 80-90 hl per hectare. The grapes are hand-picked into small crates and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle the following spring - followed by ageing on the lees for at least 15 months in cool, underground cellars.
