Vinification: the grapes, harvested manually and taken to the cellar, are de-stemmed and crushed, and then sent to 114/160/213 hl steel tanks. The grapes were moved three times a day with very short pumping overs - between 12 and 25 minutes - depending on the stage of fermentation, in order to respect the skin and the fruit as much as possible. Fermentation lasted 7/8 days, the temperature in the early stages was kept around 16-17 °C and then, approaching its conclusion, the refrigeration was suspended and the last degrees of alcohol took place with temperatures between 24 -25°C. Once the fermentation was over, the skins were drawn off. The malolactic fermentation took place in the same tanks; once concluded, between November and December, after the racking following the malolactic fermentation, the refinement began, always in steel tanks.
