Vinification

The selected grapes are destemmed and gently crushed; vinification is carried out in medium-sized vats (50-100hl) with extended maceration (20 days) and délestage at intervals. Malolactic fermentation is carried out soon after devatting, a necessary step for the subsequent ageing (18 months) in French oak barriques (a few of which are new, and the rest used for the second time). Lastly the wine completes its maturation with 12 months in the bottles.
