Matured 14 months in oak barrels

The grapes are picked manually, and then carefully selected on the sorting tables. The maceration of grapes takes between 3 and 5 days at a controlled temperature of 14° C. The alcoholic fermentation (100% by the addition of selected yeast) is controlled at 26-28° C for another 6-8 days, followed by hot maceration (thermomaceration) between 12 and 15 days. Aging was done for about 14 months in French oak barrels at the second and third use.
