100% Garganega. The wines are Pergola-Veronese trained with a planting density of 3000 plants per hectare and vertical trellised with a density of 5000 plants/ha.

Destemming is followed by gentle crushing with partial contact with the skins at a low temperature of 7°C, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature of about 16°C in 75-hl French oak barrels.
