The grapes are de-stemmed and then pressed, while the fermentation in steel tanks takes place with maceration of the skins at a controlled temperature . The process lasts about three weeks, with frequent pumping over to extract the scents and color. The subsequent maturation takes place in steel and small French oak barrels for a year, followed by a four-month refinement in the bottle.
