VINIFICATION AND REFINING — The grapes are harvested entirely by hand using boxes, steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling. The fermentation takes place 100% in steel at a controlled temperature of 14-16°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 eight months at a constant temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is bottled. There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle before the wine is distributed.
