Vinification: while the must ferments, grape skins are left macerating for a period which lasts from 18 to 21 days according to the harvest in order to enhance the extraction of phenolic compounds including tannins, anthocyanins and fruity aromas. Both malolactic and alcoholic fermentations take place in stainless steel tanks, though this last one is temperature controlled.
Ageing process: four to six months in stainless steel followed by ten to twelve months in a large wooden barrel.
