vinication and development
Alcoholic fermentation under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, maceration in the skins for about 14 days.Malolactic fermentation is always timely and poses no problems. Once ready, the wine is transferred to barriques in the months of December-January following harvest. Maturation in semi-new, fine-grained French oak barriques for about 12 months enables the wine to develop flavour and aroma, perfecting its style and longevity.
