Vinification 
Grapes picked by hand when they are fully ripe and put in baskets. Sorted minutely before and after full destemming. Fermentation in concretetankswith built-in thermoregulation which guarantees better control of the fermentation process. Long vatting period (3 weeks) for a slow and gentle extraction of the phenolic agents. Malolactic fermentation in barrels. 

The ageing process
12 to 15 months in new barrels (having matured 1 or 2 barches of wine). 20% of the barrels are replaced every year and toasting levels are selected for optimum enhancement of our wines's fruit flavors.
