The vineyards are alluvial pebbly soil with high drainage. Its geological origins come from deposits of the Quaternary era, then followed by ancient floods (Pleistocene) and more recent ones (Holocene) of the Isonzo river.
Malolactic fermentation of wine is done in steel. 70% of the product ages for 12 months in stainless steel tanks; the 30% left ages in 25hl oak barrels. Once blended, wine rests 6 months in the bottle.
The wine is recommended with strong taste dishes.
