The grapes are harvested by hand following the careful selection of the bunches most suited to withering. Once placed on racks, they are left to rest in the drying room for at least three months. During this period, they lose, on average, approximately 40% of their weight. Crushing takes place at the beginning of February with the destemming of the grapes. Fermentation temperature ranges from 12° to 23°C. Slow maceration lasts for 30 days, 12 of which at low temperature. Manual punching-down is carried out three times a day and followed by malolactic fermentation.
