The land where the Marzemino grapes are grown are located at 120-150 meters above sea level on the hills of Conegliano.
The slightly overripe grapes are harvested by hand and placed on cane racks, where they remain in natural drying for about 3 months.
In December, the grapes are pressed. The fermentation with maceration of the marc is stopped early, to maintain a high sugar residue.
Bottling takes place in spring, followed by a period of several months of rest in the bottle.
