Vinification

The grapes are harvested at two different times, in 2 (or even 3) phases, in order to express the fruit’s diverse aromas. Macerated at low temperatures, the grapes are softly squeezed and the musts obtained undergo alcoholic fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation in steel tanks. Successively, the wine is placed in yeasts for approximately 6 months until the bottling phase
