Once perfect physiological ripeness is ensured, the grapes for the Friulano Collio are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After manual harvesting, the grapes are transported to the press house as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled. Ageing in wooden barrels is followed by considerable bottle ageing, which makes this white wine even more complex.
