Production technique

The grapes are harvested in the first twenty days of September. The finest and healthiest bunches are placed in trays, taking the utmost care not to damage the grapes. They are then moved to dedicated dry and well-ventilated fruit stores where they are left to wither until the winter, losing up to 45% of their weight.

Wine-making process

De-stalking and gentle pressing followed by maceration lasting approx. 25 days during which time manual punching down and pumping over is carried out. Fermentation temperature: 18-20°C. After being drawn off, the wine is transferred into barrels where it is left to mature in the wood for around 10 months, after which it undergoes further ageing in the bottle.
