Vinification & Maturation
Carefully with a lot of care, hard work and selection through the year we pick up full matured grapes in the harvest time, macerated for 4 days and then fermented in oak barrels barrels for 11 months.
Later in the cellar with as little touch as possible we follow the natural idea of wine. Through the whole year no sulfide or any additives were added. The wine is infiltrated and a minimum amount of sulfide was added just before bottling.
