Vinification

The grapes are pressed and the stems are removed in the pneumatic tank press. Before being pressed, a 6-8 hour long cold maceration takes place in order to enhance the fruitiness of the wine.

Afterwards, the grapes are gently pressed and clarified through the natural settling of sediments. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out with pure strains of yeast at a controlled temperature of 19 °C (66 °F).
