Following the meticulous process of sorting and destemming, the harvest undergoes a brief period of cold maceration in state-of-the-art thermo-regulating stainless steel vats, lasting for a few days.
Then, a fermentation process spanning 15 to 20 days takes place. The initiation of malolactic fermentation contributes to the wine’s softening effect.
Following the winter season, the wine is meticulously transferred into 100% French oak barrels, where it matures and ages gracefully for an extended period of 12 months.
