Soil and vineyards
the differences in microclimates and soils make this territory unique and unrepeatable and they represent the source producing great wines. For this reason two particular areas were selected, where the sauvignon Petrus originates. The first one is a small vineyard, about 35 years old, located on a territory named flisch di Cormons, that is characterized by alternate layers of marlstone and sandstone of Eocene origin1. The other vineyard is located just some kilometers far away, but on a different hill of Pleistocene2 origin, called flisch di Grivò. Both vineyards are exposed to the sun on their north-eastern hillside and the origin of their small grapevine plants is the result of an accurate mass selection.

Agronomic treatments
we accomplish a stripping of leaves in the bunch of grapes area 15 days before harvesting, in order to facilitate the synthesis and the aromatic compound evolution.

Harvesting
upon achievement of full ripening of the grapes acinus and their compounds, we also carry out a sensory testing of the grapes, in order to achieve the best aromatic and cellular maturity and so that the wine durability and complexity may be preserved.
