  • Technical Information

    The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 8 or 10 days. Then, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 22-24 ºC in order to yield the optimum balance of tannins and fruit.
