In the harvest, the manual harvesting of the selected grapes is carried out only in the morning after the breeze from the north-east has dried the thin layer of night moisture. The delicate pressing of the whole grapes is followed by the natural decantation of the must for a whole night. The first fermentation, at 14 oC, takes place partly in steel and partly in barriques. In the following spring, the yellow ribolla is made to referment, very slowly, to 12 μc, in large horizontal autoclaves; followed by the aging sur lies (on the yeasts) for a period never less than 30 lunar cycles. Bottling is carried out in complete absence of oxidation. Over 12 months of bottle are needed to complete the long aging process. Finally, the bottles are packaged and hidden manually under an original yellow tissue paper as if to preserve all the love that wise hands have been able to create in almost four years of work.
