Wine elaboration

The different varieties are harvested at optimum maturity, de-stemmed and sorted before steeping. To avoid mechanical crushing, the grapes are extracted from the vats and poured by gravity into the press. Maceration lasts only 12 days and is carried out in the cold (20 ° C) in order to highlight the natural fruit of the harvest. Pumping takes place daily before and at the beginning of fermentation. During fermentation, gentle extraction is sought using light punching down and temperature control. Maturation is carried out in stainless steel vats for 5-6 months.
