Vinification: once the grapes reach full phenolic maturation, they are harvested, destemmed and gently pressed. The fermentation with the berry skins (maceration) occurs in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 22-24°C for about three weeks. Pumping over and punching down the wine increases the extraction of tannins and colours from the skins. After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wine ages for 18 months in new French oak barrels and then for 6 months in bottle. Low yield, 4.500 kg/ha on average. Organic viticulture.
