winemaking

The grapes are de-stemmed, gently pressed and then fermented with maceration of the skins for about three weeks at a controlled temperature of 22-24 ° C in steel containers. During this period, several punching down and pumping over are carried out in order to extract the greatest amount of aromas and color from the skins. The racking and malolactic fermentation are then carried out. Aging takes place for 8-10 months in 5 hl oak barrels.
