YIELD PER HECTARE
By hand, with a painstaking selection of the grapes harvested at full ripeness
The vinification of red grapes is carried out in part via the submerged cap me- thod for extracting the sweeter tannins and in part via manual punching down for achieving a good extraction of the colour. Fermentation continues with the submerged cap for 15 days at a temperature varying between 26 and 28 °C. During the initial maceration stages, the “délestage” is carried out to make the tannins softer and the colour more stable. After the racking, the malolactic fer- mentation starts, partly in stainless steel and partly in wood. Ageing is perfor- med in small oak barrels for 8 months, followed by 3 months in bottles.
Alcohol Volume 13,5% – Total acidity 5,60 g/L
