HARVEST: Harvest is carried out when the grapes reach full maturity with a very high concentration of sugar. The grapes are hand-selected using only the best grapes.
TECHNICAL PRODUCTION: From the sorting table, the grapes are destemmed and pressed gently. The juice is fermented at a controlled temperature, with long maceration on the skins for about 18-20 days.
AGING: After malolactic fermentation, the must is aged in new French oak barrels for about 20-22 months. Once bottled, it is aged in a temperaturecontrolled cellar for a further 12 months before release. It's the most important wine in the company and is produced in very limited quantities.
