Individual vine-growers contribute their grapes to the wineries based on personal cards recording all identification data of the production areas. During vintage, the agronomist in charge verifies the extent of maturation of the grapes and establishes vintage timing accordingly. Upon arrival at the winery, grapes are selected by type, area of origin and sugar content, as these indications are fundamental to determine the wine quality potential. Each bunch is trimmed to increase concentration, grapes are hand picked.
Soft pressing and fermentation with maceration at a controlled temperature no lower than 20 ° C and in the presence of yeasts. Storage in steel tanks at a controlled temperature always below 20 ° C trying to protect the wine with nitrogen to avoid the oxidative effect of the air.
