GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS The vineyards from which San Lorenzo is produced are located on two estates in the Osimo and Ancona areas. The nature of the soils is predominantly clayey and calcareous. The planting density ranges from 2200 to 5680 vines per hectare, and training is on the spurred cordon system. The yields are between eight and nine tons per hectare.

Vinification: The grapes are destalked and lightly pressed, then undergo maceration for 10‐ 12 days in steel fermentation vats. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine starts the malolactic fermentation. The wine then moves on to the ageing process. About 50% is aged in 5000‐8000 litre oak lasks, and the rest in barriques on their third or fourth time of use, for a period of about 12 months. After assemblage, San Lorenzo rests in bottle for a further 6 months.
