  • Technical Information

    Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation takes place at in stainless steel tanks for 15-17 days at 14-16°C. The process is then completed by a short ageing period on lees that result in an elegant, well-structured wine that is designed to be consumed young.
