Wine making
Grapes are destemmed and softly crushed, maceration for 8/10 days in steel tanks at a maximum temperature of 25° C, manual pump-overs and frequent delestages during the initial phases of fermentation. Maceration is aimed at extracting softer tannins and obtaining a well-structured and balanced wine. Maturation in new barriques takes 10 months, during which the malolactic fermentation takes places, further enhancing the body and softness of the wine.

At least 6 months
