Black-fruited from the soil's health, grapes are grown on the Tortonese hills, a portion from vines planted by Valli Unite's grandparents. Grapes come from 60% 10-15 year old vines and 40% 40-year old vines from white clay and tuff. Grapes are handpicked from the Ulivi vineyard and are de-stemmed and crushed before being transferred to cement tanks to begin fermentation spontaneously. The liquid is pressed off the skins after about one week and the wine is naturally cold-stabilized over winter. It is bottled without filtration or addition of sulfites.
