Harvest: beginning of September. Soft pressing, without picking the wood from the bunches, in pneumatic presses, to avoid damages to the wooden part of the grapes, which could give unwanted components to the wine. Refrigeration of the must at 6 to 8°C, to block any beginning of fermentation and to favour the natural decantation of the skin. Then, another refrigeration, bringing down temperature to 0°C, to definitively block the fermentation. The must, maintained sweet, is stored in big stainless steel tanks, in a refrigerated area; with this procedure, its aromatic bouquet is preserved till consumption. During every period of the year, following needs, the must can be taken from the refrigerated area and put to ferment in airtight tanks, where it develops carbon dioxide (which causes its characteristic aromatic structure and perlage). Bottling, by using isobaric fillers, in special bottles (resistant to a 4-5 bar pressure); cork is secured with a wire hood.
