Es sind dies die Spitzenweine von San Simone. Es werden die besten Trauben ausgewählt, um sortentypische, elegante, konzentrierte Weine auf höchstem Niveau zu erzielen. Normalerweise bevorzugen wir Stahlbehälter für Vergärung und Ausbau unserer Weine. In den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten haben wir jedoch für den Ausbau einiger Sorten kleine Eichenfässer eingesetzt, um die Eigenart der Frucht und des Terroir noch stärker zur Geltung zu bringen. Also Holz als Mittel, das nichts hinzufügen oder überdecken soll und sich dann möglichst diskret wieder zurückzieht.
