Exclusive Viticultural Practices: Guyot pruning. Chardonnay is a very early variety, therefore it is sensitive to spring frosts. It can also withstand higher yields. The bunches, exposed to the sun, lead to more structured wines.
Exclusive Oenological Practices: the alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a low temperature, with clean musts. Use of selected yeasts, specific for Chardonnay. The malolactic fermentation is carried out completely.
