Codronchio is made by Albana dry late harvest . It comes from a careful selection of grapes from our cru, and is harvested by hand, a bunch at a time, with loving care and only when they begin to appear the first traces of noble rot (botrytis cinerea) . It is a painstaking job with multiple steps in vineyard , because the grapes harvest by hand as they are attacked by botrytis .

The challenge is to capture the characteristics of the territory in the bottle, but that spark of inspiration that makes the difference between a good wine and a big one .
