Our construction began by digging out a huge crater of more than 6000 cubic meters to create cellars which will accommodate up to 2000 barrels. The cellars were then totally buried under tons of earth and highly-insulating pumice stone to assure a constant temperature and humidity ideal for the ageing of our Malbec without the use of air conditioning.
We buy our barrels of French oak from Seguin Moreau and Taransaud; we may introduce some American oak in the future.
The Pinot Nero is an old vine variety from Burgundy. It is not very common in our region because of its cultivation needs and the difficulty of the vinification process. It prefers hilly grounds not too much exposed to sunlight. Though it is an early-ripening variety, this Pinot Nero of Villa Rubini is harvested late, when overripe.
