We carefully monitor the fruit maturity and flavour development during the harvest time by tasting the grape berry. Grapes are harvested at their optimum in order to optimize the concentration and a soft tannin structure. Then the fruit are immediatly destemmed and gently crushed. During the fermentation period, the temperature is carefully controlled between 18 and 28°C. It last for 3 weeks to ensure a soft tannin, colour and flavour extraction from the skins.
We use only native yeast, the wine is not sweetened or aromatized in order to protect the typicity of the terroir and the vintage.
