Vinification

The grapes underwent a quiet, long pressing and strict juice selection, followed by 24 hours of settling. A second sorting was carried out prior to the alcoholic fermentation and took place in stainless steel tanks. Temperature was monitored over the course of a month and a half and the lees were stirred every days to ensure a smooth fermentation. Following fermentation, the wine was racked and aged in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees for four months in troglodyte cellars.
