The vineyard is over 40 years old and covers about two hectares, with southern, southwestern exposure and is cultivated according to the traditional Abruzzo pergola method, with a density of 1600-2000 plants per hectare and a yield that does not exceed 40 hectoliters/ha.

The grapes are harvested in October and fermentation is immediately carried out with 18-hour maceration on the skins in temperature-controlled steel vats. The wine rests for 4 months in steel tanks and is bottled without clarification or stabilization during the month of March following the harvest.
