For this wine the grapes are handpicked in the first half of October. After the destemming, the grapes are pressed and the must is soon brought to 12 °C temperature to avoid uncontrolled fermentation. Once the must has arrived to the steel tanks, fermentation is activated using a unique ferment which gives to our wine its own personality. Ageing: 4 months in steel tanks under controlled temperatures and without oxygen and then a short refinement in bottle.
