Production note

The grapes are loaded into fermentation bins and oak barrels. Maceration and fermentation lasts for 10-35 days. Wild yeast strains are used during alcohol fermentation, and both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are carried out in barrels. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels (70% new) for 18 months before bottling.
