Vine-growing

The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards grown according to organic growing criteria in a balanced, caring and sustainable way. The vineyards’ soils carry great importance, being very active with good biological conditions which favour a fast assimilation of reincorporated organic matter. This enables full terroir expression.

Wine-making

After rigorous ripeness testing, the winery’s technical crew determine the optimal phenolic ripeness and begin the harvest in the second week of September. Once the grapes have arrived at the cellars, they are put into vat and cooled to delay the fermentation, while frequent pump-overs are carried out to achieve a better extraction of colour, aroma precursors and only the soft tannins. The alcoholic fermentation is then done at a controlled temperature of 22-24°C with gentle pump-overs. The marc is pressed in a pneumatic press, and then the malo-lactic fermentation is done in stainless steel vats. The fining, stabilization and filtering processes before bottling are carried out with the greatest care in order to preserve all of the wine’s character.
