Vinification 

Samples of the grapes are taken and tasted in order to harvest it at its optimal ripeness. In order to keep the specificity of each grape variety and their terroirs, the vatting is done separated. Then, there’s a first cold maceration in order to extract fruit’s aromas.
Afterwards, there’s a first long traditional vatting time in thermo regulated tanks, this fermentation and maceration last between 18 and 25 days with a temperature of 28 °C. The final maceration lasts 4 days with an average temperature of 33 °C in order to give a good body and make a well structured wine.
The last step is the malolactic fermentation to soften wines.
