Description:

Manual harvesting at the right stage of ripeness. Pressing-destemming every 30 minutes in horizontal fermenters with automatic temperature control. First cold maceration of the skins for 8 hours to enhance the fresh fragrance. Heating of the mass to 26°C to extract the colour and start the alcoholic fermentation. Processing of the skins in various daily cycles to soften the tannins. 50% of the wine is devatted directly in barrels of 3rd and 4th passage and in 30 hl wooden casks. The remaining 50% is processed in steel. Lees stirring and processing are then carried out to improve roundness and complexity. The malolactic fermentation is completed.
