Selection of Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes, handpicked from the oldest Vineyard at the farm. The name probably comes from the word "Sea Shells" that often emerge from the soil of the vineyards since the area was covered by the ocean


The harvested grapes are divested (cleaned) of their stalks and undergo cryo-maceration for 72 hours. Subsequently, they are gently pressed.  Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Finally, the lees are stirred weekly with final micro-oxygenation
