and the climatic season. In the cellar the vines are carried out
separately and carefully in cryomaceration and fermentation
at controlled temperatures for 12/15 days in steel tanks,
to preserve and extract the primary aromas as much as possible
and develop the softness that the future "Cispiano Classico" needs.

before aging for 12 months in French oak barriques.
The blend is created after this step, giving life to the final wine
which rests for about a year in steel.
