Harvest: end of September. Pressing, removal of the wood from the bunches of grapes; fermentation in big tanks with skins and selected yeasts at controlled temperature never over 25°C, till the complete transformation of the natural sugars. Frequently poured off, from October to March, to favour the natural decantation of the skins. Storage in big inox tanks guarantees a perfect maturation of the wine. Sometimes, to favour the development of its characteristic bouquet, it is refined some months in big oak barrels. During late spring or summer, after filtration, bottling at cellar temperature. Recommended consumption period within 3 years; however, some good vintages allow perfect ageing till 5-6 years.
