The soil that the Cantina del Barone winery is based on is mainly volcanic which means that it is rich in minerals and with a high skeleton content. The southern exposure of the land gives it perfect sunshine in combination with the influences of Monte Terminio, Monte Partenio and Fiano. All of the grapes at Cantina del Barone are manually harvested and transported to the cellar where they undergo a soft pressing without being destemmed. This is so that the stems can release antioxidants and tannins to the fermenting must. Fermentation takes place in steel without any added yeasts for a period of about 2 weeks.
