Description:

Manual harvest when the right state of ripeness is reached. Press destemming in automatic temperature-controlled winemakers. Alcoholic fermentation with spontaneous yeasts present on the skin and without added sulfites at different temperatures to have the optimal extraction of aromatic substances, color and tannins. Several daily cycles of processing the skins to have optimal extraction of the natural potential of the grapes. At the appropriate time racking and pressing. For quite some time, processing is carried out to improve the roundness and complexity of the wine. Natural malo-lactic fermentation part in ceramic barrels is also completed during this period. After racking, again without the addition of sulfites, the wine remains in the ceramic barrels on the fine lees for several more months for natural cold aging and physical stabilization. Before bottling, blending is done, bottled without filtration, so slight deposits may be present. Elegance, structure, density, and naturalness are the special features of this new wine designed for an attentive and modern audience. It is certainly the ideal product for even the most sensitive clientele.
