TERRITORY
The Salento region is identified by three climatic elements: the sun, the architect that creates generous degrees of sugar, the sea, responsible for the minerality of the wines, and the wind that makes this area naturally free of disease and particularly suitable for the production of "natural" wines. Characterized by extensive flat areas and modest hilly reliefs, the Salento region is geologically constituted by a calcareous structure of medium texture.

VINIFICATION
Soft pressed to preserve the fruity and floral taste. After an early
harvest of about 15 days and a 50% soft pressing, this is followed by
about three weeks of slow fermentation at a low temperature. The
frothy juice is put directly into the autoclave without leaving it on the lees, followed by cold bottling.
