Grape harvest
the grapes are collected on the basis of sensory analysis in the pre-harvest period: maximum maturation of skins and tannins is sought

Soil type
alluvial plain with marl deposits on the surface

this wine ferments at a controlled temperature of 26°C. It remains on its skins for a period of 20 days during which the extraction of colour and structure by means of simple manual punching of the cap is favoured

it is refined in small oaken barrels with 500 l capacity where the malolactic fermentation takes place for a period of 14-16 months, at the end of which it is bottled without filtering to preserve to the maximum its integrity. It is refined in the bottle for at least 4 months
