Grapes are hand-picked very early in the morning. Then, stems are gently removed and grapes macerate in low temperature. Grapes are later pressed and juice is separated from skins. Fermentation of clean must takes 15 to 20 days at 14-16 degrees C using selected yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation follows. The wine later rests in stainless steel tanks and is stabilized in cold temperature. Eventually, the wine is filtered and bottled
