Chemicals were never a part of what Matteo's predecessors used to tend the vines, and Matteo has taken an even more rigorous approach - incorporating biodynamic preparations and methodologies. Hand harvested. Spontaneous fermentation without temperature control. Aged in stainless steel. No filtering or fining and only a minimal sulfur addition if needed.
