Description:

Grapes are harvested by hand when they are ripe. They are pressed and de-stemmed using wine-making equipment with automatic temperature control. The alcoholic fermentation process takes place with spontaneous yeasts present on the grape skin and without added sulphites and at various temperatures in order to bring out aromatic substances, colour and optimal tannins. The skins are processed in different daily cycles in order to extract the grape’s natural potential as best as possible. When the right time has come, racking and pressing takes place. Processes takes place over time to improve the roundness and complexity of the wine. During this time, the natural malolactic fermentation process is also completed and the transfer is made to clay vessels. After pouring, still without added sulphites, the wine remains in the clay vessels for some months in order to mature and undergo the physical natural cold stabilisation process. Wine is blended and slightly filtered before being bottled. The new wine is elegant, structured, dense and natural, made for an attentive, modern audience. Without a doubt, it is the ideal product even for the most perceptive clientele.remains in stainless steel containers for a couple of months at least.
