HOW IS IT MADE – By getting it from the vine to the winery within an hour. The green stems from the bunches are gently removed, the berries are then crushed and open fermented for 14 days punching down the skins into the must, encouraging the interaction with the skins and fermenting juices. One third is fermented and aged in the barrel during malolactic and then on lees for 6 months. After it is racked, it’s blended and bottled.
