Its 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 a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 25°C for up to 6-8 days.
