The grapes are hand-harvested and selected in mid-October. The grapes are then brought to the winery in shallow crates, where the whole clusters are gently crushed. Maceration takes place for about a week in steel vats at a temperature of 25-28°C. The wine is then aged in stainless steel vats for about 15 months, followed by 3 months of bottle aging.
