Production Notes

  • In September, meticulously hand-harvested ripe bunches undergo gentle destemming and a week-long skin maceration.
  • Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25°C lasts 20 days.
  • Aging for 14 months—half in oak barriques and half in stainless steel tanks—culminates in a blended wine aged an additional six months before bottling.
