Winemaking and ageing A selection of grapes are manually harvested and undergo soft pressing. Fermentation of the free run grape juice takes place following cold static settling for 5 days. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. Lees are stirred regularly to extract maximum aroma and gain structure and natural stability.
The wine stays on the lees for 9 months, then bottled.
