fermentation takes place in individual tanks for the grapes of each vineyard, with controlled temperature maceration on the skins for 10-15 days at 25-29°C (77-84°F).
in the spring, once the malolactic fermentation is complete, the separate crus are assembled and the wine placed in small oak barrels where it remains until the following January. After bottling the wine is bottle aged in our temperature controlled cellars for at least another eight months before its release date.
