Winemaking Process

The vinification initiates with a spontaneous fermentation developed in 75 Hl cement casks only with indigenous yeast, during 14 days at a controlled temperature of 26-28°C.
The malolactic fermentation develops in a natural way. The aging process is made in nontoasted French oak casks for about 12 months. The bottle aging lasts for at least 3 months.
