Pressing without picking off the wood from the bunches, soft pressing in pneumatic presses to avoid breaking the wooden part of the bunches, which could give the wine unwanted components. Refrigeration of the must at 6 to 8°C to block any beginning of fermentation and favour the natural decanting of the lees. Selected yeasts are inoculated in the cleaned must for correct fermentation at the temperature of 16 to 20°C. In this way the floral and fruity characteristics of the grapes will be preserved. Filtration after the fermentation and storage in stainless steel tanks.
The wine is sent to fermentation in airtight tanks (autoclaves) where during the fermentation it develops carbon dioxide forming the foam and releasing its fresh and typical bouquet.
The bottling is made by means of isobaric fillers in bottles suitable to resist a pressure of 4 to 5 bars; the cork is secured with a wire hood.
