Production

VITICULTURE
High quality grapes selected on the vineyards of our property, managed to produce the highest possible number of bunches of smaller berries. Very high plantation density and low vigour rootstocks.

WINEMAKING PROCESS
Made from carefully destemmed grapes. The first phase of the alcoholic fermentation is managed to extract the fruit character carried on the grape skins. An eight-day alcoholic fermentation is followed by four days of maceration in contact with skins follows. The maximum temperature reached was 27ºC.
