Gran Tehyda Tinto, all the minerality of the volcanic soil

Production method: Once all the grapes have been de-stemmed, they are incubated in self-emptying stainless steel tanks. The 27 degrees maceration continues for 6 or 7 days, with continued daily pumping overs to achieve the best color and aromas. After racking and cleaning, the wine is left to rest in stainless steel tanks pending the last treatments. Once stabilized against tartaric precipitation, the wine is cold bottled after decanting and filtration.
