An ancient winemaking mediterranean tradition that has been preserved over centuries.
Local grapes have been largely suitable for long aging in wooden vats used in this type of process, creating a slow controlled oxidation that will turn into complex aromas and flavours typical in this process.
A gradual oxidation in the wine due to ambient temperature exposure together with the age of the barrels and the climate conditions in the area result in a Rancio of great characteristics.
