The grapes are picked by hand, with selection taking place first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. After de-stemming, there is a pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for about ten days. The wine is aged for 24 months in concrete tanks with a further six months’ ageing in bottle before release.
