Harvested at night by mechanical means, the grapes reach the winery in optimal condition, and the pulp is chilled through the use of dry ice. After destemming and a light pressing, the grape macerates in tanks with cooling jackets for a few hours at low temperature. Next, 50% of the free-run juice is extracted and ferments at a temperature no higher than 15° C for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks.
Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wine ages briefly on its lees.
