Production note

The alcoholic fermentation of the grapes lasts for 8-12 days at 24-26°C until the last 3 days when the temperature is brought up to 30°C. Once this first phase is completed, the malolactic fermentation proceeds, taking place in French oak barriques where the wine is aged for a long period before bottling.
