The soil around Aléria is characterized by its clay sediments left over by the evaporation of the Miocene sea (5 Ma).
The grapes are from a selection of parcels and picked at optimum ripeness levels. They are de-stemmed and vinified according to traditionnal methods at high temperatures of 28-30°C to allow good extraction of tannins and anthocyanins.
Maceration can last for up to 3 weeks. The final maturation is 10 to 12 months in stainless steel tanks.
