Soft pressure, without picking the wood from the bunches, by means of pneumatic presses, to avoid damages to the wooden part of the bunches, which could bring 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.

During any 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).
