Production method: Once grapes have been destemmed, the resulting grapes are incubated in self-emptying tanks of stainless steel. Maceration at 27 degrees lasts for six or seven days with continuous, daily pumping over, to achieve the best color and best aromas. After racking and cleaning, wine is left to rest in stainless steel tanks until the last treatments take place. Once stabilized against tartaric precipitation, wine is aged in American oak barrels for 6 months. After decantation and filtration took place, it’s finally bottled.
