VINIFICATION AND REFINING  The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes, steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18°C.
When the fermentation is over, the product thus obtained is not poured off and therefore remains in the same containers to mature for about five months at a constant temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is assembled and bottled. There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle before the wine is distributed.
