The grapes are de-stemmed and placed in 50 hl cement tanks, where they remain for about twenty days. During this time, spontaneous fermentation takes place in contact with the grape skins without controlling the temperature. 3-4 punch downs a day are carried out as needed.
After racking, the refinement takes place in 20 hl oak barrels for about 8 months. The wine is then aged in bottles for 2 months before release.
