Before the fermentation, grapes are manually selected in boxes and screened on the table usually at the end of August. Furthermore, grapes is delicately stemmed and softly pressed. The must obtained is clarified in stainless steel through decanting at controlled temperatures for a day. The must, subsequently, ferments at controlled temperatures in tonneaux or barrique.
When the fermentation is completed, the wine is left with the yeasts for some days then decanted and put back in tonneaux until bottling in May. After about 8 months in the wood, the wine is bottled and released to the market (after 3 months). It is bottled with transparent glass corks to preserve its authentic taste and prevent the risk of deterioration. It is a very functional cork as it can be used for a long time.
