During a second selection, the mouldy grapes are immediately eliminated. After the soft pressing, the grapes are poured into inox tanks where the alcoholic fermentation starts. The maceration on skins at 25° lasts 18 days. The malolactic fermentation is managed in oak barrels, where the wine ages 18 months. The maturation continues in the bottle for 10 months.
