The objective is to make wines with structure and delicacy with concentration as well as charm. The balance of a wine is essential: refinement and complexity are the hallmarks of great wines and represent the desired goals throughout the wine making and aging processes. Of course, this notion cannot be separated from that of terroir.
Various procedures are implemented to carry out this objective: vine-growing techniques that try to favor the natural balances, reveal the terroir and keep yields in check, careful harvesting by hand, and sorting grapes prior to a winemaking procedure characterized by minimum interference. This encourages the freshness, the expression of the fruit and the personality of each wine rather than simple extraction. Maturing in barrels is a well-planned affair with an extensive use of new barrels; the wines are bottled by gravity not using filtration.
