Vinification: After the grapes are selected and harvested in the vineyard “Ambrosan”, they are placed in small cases in large, dry, well aired rooms. In this way, the grapes dry naturally and gain an extraordinary high concentration of sugars, glycerine, and aromas. After 4 months, the grapes are softly pressed. Due to the low temperature, fermentation is long and the maceration takes also more than one month.
Ageing: The wine makes an ageing partially in medium-sized Slavonia oak barrels and partially in small oak barriques for 30 months. Bottle ageing for at least 8 months before release.

Taste: Wine with a “three-dimensional” tasting progression, where the management of the alcohol content in harmony with the important structure and aromatic richness agree in a elegant power.
Aroma: The favour is dry and generous, powerful and delicate. Its fragrances remind to ripe fruits, autumn leaves and leather.
