Following the harvest, the fruit undergoes a pre-fermentation cold maceration (“cold-soak”), which consists of cooling the grapes at a temperature of 16°C in an anaerobic environment (under a CO2 blanket) to protect the must from oxidation. This non-alcoholic, aqueous extraction results in an increased color intensity and stability, softer astringency and tannins and more body and aromatics. After 48 hours, the temperature increases and alcoholic fermentation begins, lasting 12 -13 days and reaching temperatures of 27°- 28°C. After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in small-medium size oak barrels (225L – 15HL) for six months.
