    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 under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rise above 25°C.
