At 300 meters in elevation, the soil at Torcalvano is rich in clay, and slightly skeletal. High vine density, low average yields and later October harvests combine to produce grapes with concentration, complexity and a mature, balanced ripeness. The wine was fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and macerated on the skins for at least 15 days to give it a rich color. It was matured in traditional large Slavonian oak casks for 20 months and at least another 6 months in bottle before release.
