Cupone is produced in Guagnano. The harvest is done manually the second decade of September.

The grapes macerate and ferment for two weeks. The resulting wine is aged for 24 months, 12 of which in 5 hl French oak barrels.

Only the best vintages are bottled. Its duration is not less than six or seven years.
