Making

The white grapes are crushed and destemmed; the juice is poured in a big copper boiler put on a base under which there is a lively and slow fire in order for the must to boil. As it boils, the quantity reduces to 1/3 of the originl volume due to the loss of water. The concentrated must therefore obtained is left to cool in a steel container. Subsequently it is blended with 2/3 of flower must and poured in barriques where it ferments slowly.
